That’s according to team-mate Oleksandr Zinchenko, who heaped praise on the young striker ahead of arguably the most crucial period of his Gunners career.
Summer signing Jesus is set to be out for around three months after suffering a World Cup knee injury, leaving Nketiah as Arsenal’s only remaining striker.
“We are all behind [Jesus] and supporting him, of course, is a big miss for our team,” Zinchenko told Sky Sports.
“The impact of what he does for the club is incredible. I’ve known him for a while and he’s a great warrior and I’m 100% sure he’ll be much, much stronger.
“Since I came here, [Nketiah] has been amazing. Honestly, even watching him last season, I was surprised a lot because his abilities and qualities are amazing. It has incredible potential and a certain future.
“The way he works so hard, I have no doubts about him. Of course, he is going to help the team as much as he can and he understands the pressure a bit now.
“He should realize how important he will be for the rest of the season.”
