The Gunners had a lot to do with the amazing pair before the start of the summer transfer window
Arsenal are interested in signing Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling
Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal team have a big week ahead of them. They are currently battling to return to the Champions League, beating fourth-placed Tottenham, who are currently fourth in the Premier League.
Returning to the continent’s top league could have a huge impact on the future of Spain and its young team, as the transfer fee increases and it has the potential to attract reputable players. The priority this summer will be the attacking division.
With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketia set to leave as free agents this summer, Arteta has already revealed the need for a new striker. “You can play good football, but there must be enough goal danger for the team. Another thing is that he has to make up for the other people we have, both personally and on the pitch. We need the right profile,” he said.
From Dominic Calvert-Levine to Alexander Isaac, several players have been named by the Gunners. But the last two names are Manchester City couple Gabriel Jesus and Rahim Sterling.
Both are valued at at least € 50 million (£ 42.7 million) by the CIES football watchdog, and despite their quality, they play irregularly at the Etihad. Sterling and Jesus will definitely help Arsenal improve, but it remains to be seen where they will fit, so here are three possible options.
Sterling right, Jesus left
Thanks to Sterling’s versatility, he can start from the right. His speed allowed him to take players from the outside, but his left leg was weak and it could be difficult to cut more.
Jesus often played from the left because he could cut in with his right foot like a teammate. The 25-year-old has scored eight goals this season and has been able to play as a center-forward, but has also featured many times.
Sterling east, Jesus south
Another option is to have the England player play on your favorite left side and, if necessary, enter with your right foot. It was the position he played the most for both the club and the country, but he would compete with Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe for the position.
Jesús then found the talent to score in all of the Civic Tournaments, so he can play as a center-forward who needs to be replaced.
Both in front
The third option is to be able to play both as a center-forward. It would have given Jesus the support he sometimes needed, while Sterling has played against Harry Kane many times for England. Under Arteta’s guidance, the 4-2-3-1 formation is a regular feature of the squad.
Joy Barton’s Bristol Rovers made an impressive comeback after a 7-0 win on the final day
The Gazans secured a place in the Premier League next season, beating Northampton Town by a goal difference in a stunning victory over Skuntorp.
Joy Barton’s Bristol Rovers confirmed their second-most scandalous run in the second division with a 7-0 win over Scuntorp on the final day of the season.
Gas’s biggest win since 1964 put Northampton Town in third place. Both teams started the day with 77 points, but the Shoemakers were five goals behind. John Brady’s side did their part with a 3-1 win at Barrow, but Rovers was nervous as he continued to score against Scuntorpe.
The Universe took the lead most of the afternoon, losing 3-1 to Barrow at half-time and losing at home. Rovers, who led 2-0 at halftime, needed five goals in just 45 minutes, so the win seemed to be enough.
However, Barton’s side thrashed their opponents after the start. They won 6-0 in the 76th minute, one goal ahead of Northampton.
The most important seventh goal was the firing of Elliot Anderson from Newcastle, which led to a manic attack on the pitch and the referee’s two-goal ban. Barton addressed the crowd to restart the game.
Northampton then met with ten men at the end of the game, but a 3-1 victory left them anxious to see if they would like it when they resumed at Skuntorp Memorial.
But Iron, who had already fallen, failed to score, and Barton’s men secured the most impressive and unexpected progression, returning directly to the Premier League. Just before 5:15 p.m., during a full-time whistle blown at the Memorial Stadium, fans saw another massive attack, led by head coach Barton.
Rovers will join Exeter City and Forest Green next season, and Rob Edwards’ side secured the title on a fantastic day. They drew 2-2 at Mansfield Town and won 1-0 at home to Port Wales. Both Mansfield and Wale will now make the playoffs, along with Swindon and Northampton.
Nigel Clowe’s side will face Northampton two feet apart, and the Shoemakers are offering a very disappointing last day.
The other draw will see Swindon face Port Wales, who want to return to the Premier League immediately after being relegated last season.
The playoffs begin next Saturday.
