“Legend in the making” – Some Arsenal fans drool over teenager who looks “the full package”

Arsenal fans believe that Brazilian striker Gabriel Martinelli has the most potential of the club’s current crop of youngsters.

The teenager arrived from the South American side Ituano for £6m on a “long-term contract” in the summer and has had an exhilarating start to life in north London.

Martinelli has already scored four goals in four appearances for Arsenal during his four-month stay at the club. The youngster received praise from former England striker Michael Owen after his strong start with Arsenal, saying that he “looks like a talent” after his brace during the Gunners’ 4-0 win against Standard Liege in the Europa League.

Martinelli has said that he models his game on Cristiano Ronaldo and it was a dream to play football in Europe. His performances reflect his comments and the Arsenal supporters have seemingly warmed to him since his summer move.

Fans responded to the question posted by Now Arsenal on Twitter (via @now_arsenal) questioning who has the most potential out of Bukayo Saka, Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson and Martinelli himself. One fan said that the Brazilian has the “full package” while another said that he was an “absolute legend in the making”.
