PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Gabriel Jesus has already revealed his intentions at Arsenal for the 2022/23 season. From a team perspective, the £45m summer signing from Manchester City will be hopeful of playing a role in ending the Gunners' long absence from the Champions League - whether that be via a top-four finish in the Premier League or winning the Europa League - as well as tasting success in the domestic cup competitions. But Gabriel Jesus' individual target - like the best centre-forwards across the division and in Europe - is to fight for the Premier League Golden Boot award along with compatriot Richarlison who joined Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the summer.

"He's a very good guy, amazing player, so I wish him all the best but not against us!" Of course, if Gabriel Jesus is to be up there amongst the leading scorers in the Premier League this season he will be facing challenges from the likes of Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, Jamie Vardy, Cristiano Ronaldo and the 2021/22 joint-winner in Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to get his hands on the award. Now, it's worth keeping in mind that the one thing three of the aforementioned players all have in common is they are the first-choice penalty takers at their respective clubs and that can ultimately be the decisive factor at the end of the season when it's time to hand out the prizes. At Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus doesn't appear to be the first-choice penalty taker yet.

. Based on last weekend's 6-0 thrashing of Sevilla in the Emirates Cup, the indication is that a decision has been made for Saka to take Arsenal penalties this season as he took responsibility once again even with the £45m signing on the pitch and that may affect the Brazilian's chances of winning the Golden Boot award come May 2023. With that said, not being on penalty duty doesn't necessarily harm Gabriel Jesus' hopes as proven by Spurs' Son Heung-min. Last season the South Korea international shared the Golden Boot award with Salah but none of his 23 Premier League goals came via the spot. If the Gunners striker does emulate the Tottenham ace he will become the first Arsenal player to win the top scorer award since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - also shared with Salah and Sadio Mane - in the 2018/19 season whilst Robin van Persie claimed the prize outright with 30 goals in 2011/12. On average, at least 20 goals is enough to be in contention for the Premier League Golden Boot award. Gabriel Jesus' best return so far is 14 from his time with Man City, but with seven goals for Arsenal in pre-season, playing as a central striker most weeks could be the boost he needs to mount a serious challenge.
