It’s now a month since Arsenal’s hopes of Champions League football were dashed by a rampant Chelsea, and Gunners fans have been patiently waiting for the club to kick into gear in the transfer market.
Unai Emery’s side have been linked with a whole host of names in recent weeks and reports have suggested that the club are very much interested in securing a new winger for next season.
Whilst it appears Crystal Palace are digging their heels in over prized possession Wilfried Zaha, one man who the Gunners have been able to get through the door is Brazilian prospect Gabriel Martinelli.

Following confirmation of the 18-year-old’s arrival at the Emirates, fans of the north London side took to Twitter to reveal their thoughts on their first new signing.
Despite getting their transfer window underway, many Arsenal supporters seemed rather underwhelmed by the announcement of Martinelli, and wondered whether an unproven teenager was the kind of profile of player they should be targeting.
Indeed, some were adamant that the club should be prioritising a move for positions that the side desperately needed, whilst there were also a few resigned comments from those who thought the Brazilian would end up leaving in the near future and becoming a superstar elsewhere.
Check out some of the reaction of Arsenal fans below:
Can’t wait to see him play 2 games in the league cup, appear as a sub away at Old Trafford in April, leave on a free and be Dortmund’s player of the season in 4 years time
