Arsenal fans react to another impressive cameo from Gabriel Martinelli

Having signed from Ituano to very little fanfare, Gabriel Martinelli has arguably been one of Arsenal’s brightest performers in pre-season.

Along with some of the Gunners’ other talented prospects, the 18-year-old has shown tantalising glimpses of the potential he possesses, and delivered another statement-making performance against Barcelona on Sunday.

The Brazilian’s cameo display was full of energy and on more than one occasion showed he has a great knack of arriving at the right time for deliveries into the box.

Despite Unai Emery’s side falling to a late defeat in their final pre-season match of the summer, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to hail Martinelli’s impressive performance.

Many urged the Gunners to play the teenager ahead of more established first-team stars like Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and felt he is already showing that he is deserving of more opportunities.

Indeed, some simply insisted that Martinelli is a “baller” and praised his directness and willingness to get into the box to score goals.
