Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has once more heaped praise on Arsenal starlet Gabriel Martinelli, the German reserved special praise for transfer chief Edu Gaspar for what seems to be a very rare find.
Jurgen Klopp has described Arsenal ace Gabriel Martinelli as ‘unbelievable’ and was impressed with how ‘mature’ the young forward is for an 18-year-old.
The Reds boss added that Liverpool’s scouting department is “all over the world” but credited Arsenal transfer chief Edu Gaspar for finding the Brazilian talent.
The German was speaking to Esporte ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Genk on Tuesday night.
The sky really is the limit for Martinelli at Arsenal, the ace already looks worth heaps more than the bargain price we paid this summer. talkSPORT claim that we secured the starlet’s services from Ituano for just £6m.
Take a look at what the Champions League winning boss had to say on our special prospect:

Martinelli has looked exceptional since joining this summer, the forward has managed to score 7 goals in just 4 appearances in cup competitions.
The talented Brazilian has featured four times in the Premier League, although these have all come by way of the bench.
Given Martinelli’s prolific form it would be nice to see Unai Emery hand the promising youngster the chance to start in a top-flight clash soon.
