EPL: Darren Bent hands Arsenal names of players to sign apart from Jesus


Former Tottenham Hotspur striker, Darren Bent, has handed Arsenal the names of players to sign apart from Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus.

Bent wants Arsenal to sign Brighton’s Yves Bissouma and RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku after sealing Gabriel Jesus’ signature.

Arsenal have reportedly agreed to personal terms with Jesus and have contacted Manchester City.

However, Bent believes Bissouma and Nkunku, as well as Jesus, would be good additions to Mikel Arteta’s squad.

When asked who he believes Arsenal should sign this summer, Bent said on talkSPORT (as quoted by Express): “First of all, it’s someone Arsenal have been linked with and I’m led to believe it’s quite close – Gabriel Jesus. I’d like to see him go to Arsenal. I think he’d be brilliant.”

He added, “He’s not got a point to prove, but I think he needs regular football and I think he’s more than good enough to score the goals to help Arsenal get back to where they’d like to get to. So I think that would be a really good addition to the squad.”

“I’d love to see Yves Bissouma from Brighton. I think he’s top drawer. I think [his price] has gone up more. But Yves Bissouma I think is a top drawer holding midfield player. I love Thomas Partey, but again he’s had his injuries and consistency’s been his problem. He’s durable, Yves Bissouma, so I think I would like to see him come through the door.

“And Christopher Nkunku. [He would cost] a lot. There’s talk about him going back to Paris Saint-Germain. But I would love him. I think he fits the bill, he can play centre-forward, he can play off the left, he can play off the right.”
