Martinelli fears raised as Arsenal told of transfer near miss

Arsenal fans have raised fears that Gabriel Martinelli could be targeted by Liverpool, as Patrice Evra has suggested the Gunners were fortunate not to sign Arthur Melo in January

Fears have been raised over Gabriel Martinelli’s future at Arsenal following another stellar display for the club.

The young Brazilian winger was one of the few positives to come out of the 2-0 Premier League loss to Liverpool on Wednesday night. But Jurgen Klopp’s praise for the Arsenal star has raised fears among the Gunners fanbase that the German may try to poach the winger off his rivals.

It comes as Patrice Evra has suggested the Gunners got away with a near transfer miss following January target Arthur Melo’s latest performance. And Mikel Arteta has avoided being punished over his rant about Arsenal’s fixture congestion.

Martinelli fears

Famous Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has raised fears that Gabriel Martinelli could move to Liverpool following another impressive display by the winger.

Martinelli was a constant threat for the Gunners despite falling to a 2-0 defeat on Wednesday night following quickfire goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.

The Gunners ace has received admiring glances from Reds boss Jurgen Klopp in the past, and the Liverpool manager was full of praise for him once again following the match at the Emirates Stadium – raising fears he could try and poach the youngster.
