EPL He’ll score more goals than Jesus – Darren Bent tells Arsenal to sign Chelsea attacker. Former Tottenham Hotspur star, Darren Bent, has urged Arsenal to sign Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.
Bent believes Lukaku, who is currently on loan at Inter Milan from Chelsea, would score more goals for Arsenal than Gabriel Jesus.
Lukaku is set to return to Chelsea this summer after completing his loan spell at Inter Milan.
However, the Belgian’s future at Chelsea remains uncertain, given his complicated departure to Inter prior to the 2022/2023 campaign.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Bent was asked whether he would take the Chelsea forward at Arsenal. He replied: “Yes. Without a doubt.”
When asked whether that would place Jesus’ position in the squad in jeopardy, Bent added:
“No, I’m not getting rid of anyone, but I would have him. Do you know what? He would get us more goals than Gabriel Jesus.
“What Gabriel Jesus did at Arsenal [this season] was brilliant, but there were times he would frustrate me because he wasn’t in the box enough. There were times the ball would flash across the box and no one was in there – he’s on the edge of the box. But Lukaku, I know he is in there.”
