Gabriel Jesus is now back at Arsenal’s London Colney training center, where he is undergoing some light training exercises. Yesterday was his first day back with the club, but Wednesday saw him on back on the grass and getting active again in drills.
The Brazilian striker suffered a devastating knee injury while representing his country at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The original outlook set a timeline for return sometime in March.
