Midfielder Emile Smith Rowe is in awe of the new Arsenal signing Gabriel Jesus and believes the Brazil striker has all it takes to shine at the Emirates.
Jesus sealed a move from Premier League champions Manchester City to Arsenal this summer and has been impressive for Mikel Arteta’s side during pre-season, scoring seven goals in five games.
However, Gunners midfield ace Smith Rowe admits he didn’t know how sharp the £45million striker was until he saw him up close in training.
'The players that have come back [from loans], I already know how good they are so it's not a surprise to see how good they are and how well they are doing. But from the new players, I think Gabriel Jesus... I didn't actually realise how sharp he was,' Smith Rowe told FIVE.
'Obviously playing against him it's different, you see him watching Man City before. But when you actually see him in training.
'I've been telling my friends, they're always asking, and I'm like "he's ridiculous".
'Everyone in the team is really excited for the new season and the fans should be as well I think.'
