According to one report from The Telegraph, Jesus could be out for up to three months which would be a hammer blow for the Gunners and their unlikely Premier League title push.
The striker suffered the injury during Brazil’s 1-0 group stage defeat to Cameroon and the Gunners are in contact with the Brazil medical team to figure out how serious the knee injury is.
Jesus, 25, has been instrumental in Mikel Arteta’s side sitting five points clear atop the Premier League table.
If he’s missing for a long period, Arsenal will seriously consider signing an emergency striker in January.
