Jesus has been in and out of Pep Guardiola’s team, scoring 13 goals across 39 appearances in all competitions this season - however four of those game in one game.
But former Arsenal skipper Fabregas doesn’t think Jesus would be the right player to take the Gunners to the next level.
“The only thing missing [for Arsenal] you could say is the striker,” the Spaniard told LondonWorld.
“I think if they had a consistent striker, a top player who scores 25 to 30 goals a season like Liverpool with Salah, that would take them to the next level.
And Fabregas is sure Mikel Arteta is looking to bring in fresh legs up front, especially with Alexandre Lacazette heading back to France.
“That’s something they’ll work on in the summer, 100%,” he added.
And when quizzed on Jesus, Fabregas admitted his intrigue at Arsenal’s reported interest.
However he feels that while the Brazilian has a lot of quality, he is more a jack of all trades but a master of none.
“I expected Arsenal to sign another type of striker - someone who attacks the space more,” Fabregas - who played 212 times for the Gunners - said.
“I really like him as a player and I think he can do a little bit of everything, but I wouldn’t say he’s amazing at anything.
“At the end of the day, Gabriel Jesus plays in a team that are so dominant in every single game.
“Sometimes as a player in that situation, when you’ve got De Bruyne, Gundogan and Bernardo Silva behind you, it can feel easy for you as a player.
“At Arsenal, for some time at least, he will not have those kind of players behind him.
“Saka, Odegaard … they need maybe two or three more years playing together and getting used to the Premier League before they get to that level.
“Definitely he [Jesus] is a very good player but it would be a case of seeing if he can adapt to the Arsenal philosophy.”
The Gunners take on Newcastle tonight in a game they must-win to stay in pole position to qualify for the Champions League.
