Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.
According to a report from Italian outlet Calciomercato, PSG could look to sign Brazilian international Gabriel Martinelli from Arsenal at the end of the season.
Martinelli has a contract at Arsenal until the end of 2024, and it will be interesting to see if the Gunners can agree on an extension with him. Recent reports have claimed that the north Londoners are in advanced talks over a new contract.
The 21-year-old has been in fine form this season, and he has been crucial to Arsenal’s impressive performances this season. Martinelli has five goals and two assists to his name in the Premier League. The Brazilian is regarded as a prodigious talent, and losing him would be a massive blow for the Gunners. They must look to tie the player down to a long-term deal soon.
Martinelli is expected to improve further with experience and coaching. He has all the tools to develop into a world-class player. So the interest from PSG in the Arsenal forward does not come as a surprise.
The player has been an indispensable asset for Mikel Arteta during the first half of the season, and the fans will hope that the North London giants can hold on to him for as long as possible. Martinelli’s impressive performances have earned him a place in the Brazilian national team for the World Cup.
So far he has endured a frustrating campaign at the marquee event, but he has the potential to cement his place in the starting lineup soon. PSG could lose Kylian Mbappe at the end of the season, and it makes sense for them to look at potential replacements.
While the Arsenal forward is not at the Frenchman’s level yet, he has the attributes to be a very useful player for PSG. The French outfit have the financial resources to pull off a big-money move for the player as well.
It remains to be seen whether Martinelli is tempted to explore other opportunities at the end of the season. Ideally, he should commit his long-term future to the Gunners. Arsenal have played a key role in his development, and he is guaranteed regular football at the English club.
