Arsenal legend Robert Pires has opened up about the rise of young outstanding Arsenal player Gabriel Martinelli. The 21-year-old Brazilian has been impressive for Arsenal this season, scoring 14 goals and making five assists. He has not only been their top scorer but also a key player in their title race.

When asked whether Martinelli’s rise at Arsenal this season was surprising, Pires said as per Apostagolos, “I wouldn’t necessarily call it a surprise. Simply because he’s incredibly talented and we’ve known that for a while.”

“Now, like many of his teammates, he has made significant leaps forward this season. He has also become more consistent, although he can certainly continue to improve.”

Pires went on to say that Martinelli has made significant leaps forward this season, becoming more consistent, although he can certainly continue to improve. This is high praise from one of Arsenal’s greatest players, who won two Premier League titles and two FA Cups during his time at the club.

Arsenal are currently first on the Premier League table with 74 points after 31 games but are closely followed by second-placed Manchester City, which has 70 points plus a game in hand. The Gunners are in a title race and will need Martinelli to continue his impressive form if they are to win their first league title since the 2003-04 season.

Martinelli joined Arsenal from Brazilian club Ituano in July 2019 for a reported fee of £6 million. He made an immediate impact in his debut season, scoring ten goals in all competitions.


Martinelli’s rise at Arsenal is not surprising given his talent and work ethic. He is a hard-working player who is always looking to improve his game. His performances this season have earned him praise from fans and pundits alike, and he looks set to have a bright future at Arsenal.

In conclusion, Gabriel Martinelli’s rise at Arsenal this season has not been surprising to Robert Pires, who has known about the Brazilian’s talent for a while. Martinelli has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers this season and will be crucial to their title challenge. If he continues to improve, he could become one of Arsenal’s greatest players in the years to come.
