What's Martinelli's story so far? 🇧🇷 

Martinelli has shone for Brazil at various youth levels. The Arsenal move was expected to be confirmed for some time, but it was delayed because of his age the need to coincide the official announcement with Arsenal's launch of their new Adidas kit. 

It's been a while since The Gunners made a foray into the South American market for young talent, and the club's faithful will hope that they have an exciting player on their hands.

Playing style & strengths 🥊

Martinelli is a direct, goal-scoring winger who likes to cut inside and shoot off the left flank with his preferred right foot. He's quick, likes to dribble and is a talented ball-carrier who's always forward-thinking. 

He was the second-top scorer with six goals in the São Paulo state championship and helped Ituano into the quarterfinals. 

Weaknesses ☄️

Martinelli is still learning the game and must understand when to release the ball and not hold onto it when the better option is to pass. He will need to improve physically, too, as the demands of the Premier League are on another level to Brazil’s state championships.

On Social Media📱 

Arsenal welcomed the Brazilian teenager to the club with a series of posts on their Twitter account.
