Liverpool fans react to links with Gabriel Martinelli

In the latest big transfer rumour, Gabriel Martinelli is being linked with a move to Liverpool.

The 18-year-old only signed for Arsenal in the summer from Brazilian club Ituano, but he has already made a big impact at the Emirates during a difficult season for the Gunners, with Unai Emery already being sacked, and them lying in 10th in the Premier League table.

Despite not always being a guaranteed starter – he has only been in the initial XI on 11 occasions in all competitions – he has 10 goals and three assists.

In January 2019, by how many centimetres were Liverpool denied scoring a goal against Manchester City?

Footballer Insider now report the Reds are eyeing the youngster and that they will continue to monitor his development over the second-half of the campaign. The news understandably led to a hoard of Liverpool supporters taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

It seems that the Luis Suarez to Arsenal saga has not been forgotten by many supporters. The Uruguay international, of course, was the subject of an infamous £40m and £1 bid from the Gunners in 2013 due to the fact that he had a clause in his contract that said he had to be notified of any offer above £40m.

One fan, meanwhile, believes they are making a habit of signing players from fellow Premier League clubs.

Since Jurgen Klopp took over in October 2015, the Reds have brought in six players from other top-tier sides, with Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane two of the most notable arrivals. In all fairness however, it doesn’t seem like an extraordinary number.

Should Liverpool try and sign Gabriel Martinelli?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And another supporter suggested that Martinelli would be a good signing, as he is already better than one youngster at Klopp’s disposal.

Given his start to life on the pitch in England, it certainly looks like he has a big future ahead of him.

It will likely take something special to convince Arsenal to let him leave however.

Meanwhile, this Liverpool target impressed once again last weekend.
