Arsenal drop transfer hint in new kit launch amid Mikel Arteta summer window plans

Gabriel Jesus  wearing the new Arsenal 2024/25 home kit

Arsenal's recent new kit launch has offered a hint about their potential transfer business this summer.

On Thursday, the Gunners announced the new home kit that will be worn by the men's and women's teams in the 2024/25 season. The new kit, manufactured by Adidas, features the traditional red and white colours for the club, along with blue stripes on the shoulders.

Several players were included as part of the new kit reveal, including Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Alessia Russo, Leah Williamson, Gabriel Martinelli and Beth Mead, among others. Another player who was part of the kit launch was Gabriel Jesus.

Recent weeks have seen the Brazilian heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer. Jesus has struggled with injuries this season and has scored just eight goals in 35 appearances for the Gunners.

That form has seen Jesus linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer. However, there have also been reports stating that the 27-year-old is determined to stay at the Emirates Stadium and fight for his place in the squad.

Jesus' inclusion in the Arsenal kit launch is hardly confirmation that he will not be leaving the club this summer.

However, it does provide a hint that the club do not have any plans to let the striker depart after what would be just two years in North London.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with signing a striker ever since last summer, with such rumours intensifying as the transfer window approaches. That has led to speculation that Jesus' future may not lie at the Emirates, but Mikel Arteta dismissed such rumours when he was asked about the reports earlier this month.

“I don’t know where this is coming from. No, no," Arteta told reporters on May 3, when asked if Arsenal had any plans to let Jesus leave the club.
