Paul Merson raves about Martinelli's quality after perfect performance vs Standard Liege
- Merson says the Brazilian just have to carry on with his progress.
- The ex-Gunner believes Auba and Laca will help his development.
“You’ve got to remember the standard of the game, but what he did in the game was absolutely brilliant,” Merson told Sky Sports of Gabriel Martinelli after a briliant performance vs Standard Liege.
“You’ve just got to carry that on. He looks a special player for £6 million in this day and age. If he starts playing in that position behind people like Lacazette and Aubameyang, that will only help his game.”
The Brazilian joined Arsenal in summer and was promoted to the senior squad after pre-season. The 18-year-old has accumulated 213 minutes on the pitch across all competitions this season. The Brazilian has registered 4 goals and 1 assist so far this campaign.
