Arsenal are sweating over the fitness of striker Gabriel Jesus after he suffered a possible knee injury in Brazil’s defeat to Cameroon at the World Cup.
The five-time champions suffered a shock 1-0 loss on Friday night, with Vincent Aboubakar’s late goal sealing a famous win for the African side.
Despite the defeat, Brazil still topped their World Cup group and progressed to the last 16 along with Switzerland, who beat Serbia 3-2 in the group’s other game.
Brazil will now face South Korea in their round of 16 clash on Monday.
“Telles came off complaining of pain in his right knee after trauma,” said Lasmar.
“He has been assessed in the changing room and tomorrow will do a magnetic resonance image to be able to assess his condition.
“Gabriel Jesus after the game complained of pain in his right knee and after clinical assessment, we have asked for an imaging exam tomorrow.”
Arsenal fans are understandably concerned by Jesus’ injury and the impact it could potentially have on the Premier League title race.
