Arsenal midfielder Xhaka: Gabriel Jesus looks like the missing piece

Arsenal star Granit Xhaka believes that Gabriel Jesus could be the missing piece in their team.

The Brazilian centre-forward has enjoyed an outstanding start to his career as a Gunner.

Jesus moved from Manchester City to the London club to once again play under Mikel Arteta, who was assistant to Pep Guardiola at City.

Asked about Jesus being a missing piece, Xhaka said: "It looks like it at the moment.

"He is so important for us. You can see how much he works, not only because he is scoring and giving assists, but he works for the team unbelievably.

"He is like this every day in training. When he doesn't score, he's hungry and this is a striker who makes a difference in the end in the box, and we are so happy to have him. Let him continue and reach these numbers more and more."
