Arsenal’s London and Premier League rivals Chelsea are reportedly monitoring the 21-year-old Brazil international forward, described as a “machine” by his Gunners teammate Gabriel Jesus on Instagram this weekend.

Arsenal are a massive club and a global brand, just like Chelsea.

And they are now on the up, with a top-four finish in the Premier League table very likely this season.

We do not think that the Gunners will sell Martinelli anytime soon.

The 21-year-old is one of the bets young attacking players out there, and Arsenal will be fully aware of what he can achieve in the coming years.

The Brazil international forward has scored 14 goals and created 11 big chances in 65 Premier League appearances for Arsenal so far in his career.
