Juventus targeting Arsenal man
Italian giants Juventus are interested in landing Arsenal striker Gabriel Martinelli in the summer, according to Italian news outlet Tutto Sport.
After struggling to establish himself in the starting eleven of Arsenal at the start of his European journey at North London, Martinelli has turned the tables to become one of the influential figures in the current young Arsenal team.
The Brazilian has made an impressive 33 appearances for the Gunners this season, making 11 goal contributions. His off the ball movements and energy-sapping runs are also something which deserves a mention.
In the first half vs Leeds, Gabriel Martinelli ranked first on the pitch for:
⚔️ duels won 
⚡️ successful take-ons 
💨 fouls drawn 
🎩 chances created 
🅰️ assists

His performances this season were bound to attract attention and the 36-time Serie A winners are one club looking at his situation.
The report suggests that the manager of the Old Lady Max Allegri is scouring the European market to add fresh blood into his team in the final third.
Alongside Martinelli, Angel di Maria and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are other names believed to be on the list.

Even though the North London outfit have been linked to several wingers in the recent past, letting go of Martinelli would make little sense.
The 20-year-old represents what we are trying to build under the helm of manager Mikel Arteta.
He has already shown what he’s capable of doing on a football pitch. Judging on that basis, one can only wonder what his ceiling will be.
I can easily imagine him as one of the best Brazilian players ever to grace the Premier League. And I doubt many Arsenal fans would disagree with me.
Can someone or something please keep these people away from us, they have the idiot that toyed with us the whole of January before lapping up to them. We have nothing in common except being an upper-class football club.
For God’s sake, let them stay away.
Great talent we’d be foolish to sell him currently. But I also think his numbers are not where they’re supposed to be for such a talent, but he’ll get there.
Hmm not a chance in hell even when u had del piero and inzhaghi in there prime still wouldnt be intrested
Does he want to play in a pub team league?
Italian football has been in steady decline for a long time. Now they don’t qualify for the international competitons any more, their clubs don’t feature in the later stages of the CL.
The action is in the EPL.
That shouldn’t worry you in any way. All the players are happy with what is happening here – our vision and mission – especially the ones we need. Any one that wants to go, the door is wide open and we won’t stand in anybody’s way.
I can assure you that not all are happy and i think you will be surprised at some possible departures.
After that Vlahovic saga, why would Arsenal want to do any kind of business with these crooked Italian clubs. Martinelli is not for sale, period. Juventus wants Thomas Partey ,they must pay 80m pounds upfront, they want Gabriel, pay 90m pounds upfront and Martinelli, they must pay 130m pounds upfront. Deal or no deal. Arsenal is a much bigger club than Juventus.
