And upon Jesus’ arrival he admitted that he was thrilled to complete the deal.

The Arsenal boss said: “I’m very excited. The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature.

“I know Gabriel personally very well, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and being really successful here.

“This is a position that’s been on our radar for a long time now and we have managed to get a player that we all wanted, so I’m really happy.”

Jesus, who will wear No9, joined his new team-mates in training for the first time shortly after Arsenal announced his arrival.

And it appears he has already settled in well.

Kieran Tierney was also present in training, much to the relief of Arsenal fans.

The left-back required surgery for a knee injury which he sustained while on international duty with Scotland earlier this year.

Fabio Vieira currently remains out of action with a foot issue.
