Martinelli ready to follow in the footsteps of Arsenal's Brazilian heroes - Gilberto Silva impressed by Gunners strike sensation

Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva is excited to see the progress of striker Gabriel Martinelli at the club. The 18-year-old is already into double figures of goals for the season and has proven something of a surprise package since arriving from Ituano last summer. Gilberto is pleased to see his fellow Brazilian thrive at the Gunners, the club at which he won the 2003-04 Premier League title as one of The Invincibles. “The way he started to make himself stand out isn’t easy is it?” And Edu hinted that David Luiz’s future seems set to be in London, despite previous indication that he might return to Benfica. They also have to be proud to be where they are; that helps as well.” Arsenal recommence their Premier League campaign on Wednesday at home against Manchester City.
