3. Gabriel Jesus (winner)

Contrary to popular belief, I do think that Gabriel Jesus could benefit from a world-class scorer coming into the ranks. So far in his Arsenal career, he is yet to face a serious challenge in the squad depth. Let's be real, Nketiah is never going to start ahead of Jesus when both of them are fit.

So, while it might seem contradictory to say, Jesus could get better if his position in the starting eleven is challenged a little more. After all, nothing beats healthy competition.

4. Eddie Nketiah (loser)

Signing Victor Osimhen is likely the point of no return for Nketiah. When all players are considered including Havertz and Trossard, Nketiah is the fourth choice striker. Signing Osimhen, then, would only make him the fifth choice.

As a Hale End graduate, Nketiah has had a great Arsenal career and helped out during some pivotal moments. However, he is at the age where he must seek regular playing time.
