Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta pinpoints “exceptional” Gabriel Jesus replacement after transfer U-turn
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is supposedly observing Barcelona forward Ferran Torres – under a half year after the Gunners bombed in a last-wheeze £26million plunge for the former Manchester City star.
Torres just fixed a fantasy move to the Nou Camp last January after the Spanish monsters befuddled up £47.5million to prise the Spanish international away from the Etihad. In any case, that didn’t stop the Gunners from sending off a brassy bid to bait Torres back to the Premier League in the mid year move window.
While Barcelona rebuked that methodology, Torres is still a lot of on Arsenal’s radar – and they could revive their endeavors to eat up the flexible forward now that Gabriel Jesus could be sidelined for a long time.

Talking last week, Arteta seemed to indicate that the Gunners would attempt to track down a replacement for Jesus inside their crew, expressing that “there are things we can attempt”. Subsequent to demanding it was too early to foresee when Jesus would return, the Spaniard said: “We take a gander at the crew and see what the choices we have our with the players we have accessible. There are things we can attempt, we want to do as such.”
Yet, it seems like Arteta’s position might have changed, with a report from Fichajes guaranteeing that the Gunners are considering over a new methodology for Torres, who worked close by Arteta during his past stretch at Manchester City.
Torres, who was important for the Spain crew that was taken out of the World Cup rashly recently, could be offloaded by Barcelona in the New Year, with the report guaranteeing that Xavi has ‘lost confidence’ in the 22-year-old and given club president Joan Laporta the go-ahead to impel a deal.
AC Milan and Tottenham are likewise accepted to be keen on securing Torres’ administrations – and Barcelona trust that interest from a few gatherings could assist them with recovering an enormous lump of the €55m (£47.5m) aggregate they dished out on the player last year.
A re-visitation of the Premier League would see Torres encounter Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who loved the “extraordinary” forward and needed to keep him at the club.
“I would say the last season Ferran played was exceptional,” Guardiola said back in August 2021 when he was questioned about Torres’ performances as City’s No.9.
“He is a good finisher, he is so young. Man City made an incredible job buying him, a player who can play in three positions. He is an incredibly good finisher, the goal against Norwich that was disallowed the finishing was good. We are incredibly pleased with his movement his work ethic with many things.”
