Arsenal closing in on Brazilian attacker



Gabriel Martinelli

North London outfit Arsenal are reported to be on the verge of completing the signature of Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli ahead of the coming summer transfer window.

Gabriel Martinelli has been impressive for his club- Ituano in Brazil and he is tipped to have a move to Europe as he is already interesting a number of top European sides.

The Brazilian is a 17-year-old who has been tipped to be the future of the country. he once had a trial with Man United at the Old Trafford about 2 years ago but they seem not to be convinced about his signature as at that time.

There are suggestions that the North London outfit Arsenal have now won the race for Gabriel Martinelli and they have been told he would cost £5 million, which is expected to be affordable for the manager Unai Emery.

It is therefore unclear if he would be a first team player at the Emirates Stadium with the number of options available for him but there are no doubts the Spanish boss will make good use of him should he deliver.

However, the Gunners are expected to be active in the coming summer transfer window so as to strengthen the team.
