Liverpool fans believe the club should take the opportunity to sign Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli after reports emerged that the Reds were monitoring the progress of him.
The 18-year-old was the Gunners’ first signing of the summer from the Brazilian side Ituano and said that he models his game on Juventus star and multiple-Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, as per BBC Sport. Martinelli has scored 10 goals in 21 appearances for the north London side during the current campaign and his run of form has turned the heads of the red half of Merseyside.
