Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has spoken highly of new star striker Gabriel Jesus and mentioned that the Brazilian, alongside Eddie Nketiah, can form a ‘dangerous’ partnership in attack.

The Gunners have showcased their attacking prowess throughout pre-season preparations, recording a number of high scoring games ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Stars such as Jesus and Nketiah have been positive in front of goal and recently got Xhaka’s stamp of approval.

The midfielder mentioned that the Brazilian and Ghanaian can forge a strong relationship on the pitch, one that will prove to be ‘dangerous’ for opposition defenders.

“It’s very exciting,” Xhaka told the Arsenal official website.

“First of all I love his attitude, his hunger to achieve something, to win something. He’s come from a team who have already won everything, and he gives us the hunger, the belief and the quality.

“But as well he’s a very humble guy. Very open, you can be serious with him, you can joke with him. This is what we need at this football club.

“With him and Eddie now up front, we have two guys who can be very dangerous for the opponent.

“He’s scored already in the friendlies, hopefully he can keep doing that.”
