GABRIEL JESUS stepped up his recovery as he nears a return from injury.
The striker has been out of action since suffering a medial collateral ligament injury in his knee at the World Cup.
Jesus underwent surgery and was expected to be sidelined for around three months.
He has been hard at work at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground ever since.
And now the club have released photos of the Brazilian being put through his paces.
Jesus, 25, performed various exercises to strengthen his knee including walking in a pool.
One snap also appeared to show the Arsenal forward balancing on the leg he injured.
Jesus has been on the treatment table for nine weeks, meaning he could be back in early March.
Earlier this month he shared photos showing he was back on the grass and doing kick-ups with a ball.
Arsenal fans were delighted to see him continue his progress and hope he will be available for selection soon.
