Rio Ferdinand names Arsenal’s ‘most valuable player’ this season.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has revealed Arsenal’s ‘most important player’ this season. He hailed Gabriel Jesus as Arsenal’s “most essential player” despite the player’s current goalless streak.
Jesus, who cost Arsenal £50 million in the summer after leaving Premier League rivals Manchester City, has had a fantastic start to his Arsenal career.

‘He basically said: “we need our strikers scoring if we’re going to be successful… we need them to score”. That’s a fact.
‘Listen, I still believe he’s Arsenal’s most important player by the way. Without him, Arsenal are not the same team. But he just needs to add goals now. You can’t criticise anything else he’s doing.’
