‘Better Than Pele’ ‘Neymar Who?’ ‘Ronaldo 2.0’ Arsenal Fans On Social Media Go A Bit Overboard After 18 Year Old’s Scoring Debut

Arsenal’s newest signing Gabriel Martinelli got his first outing during the tour of the United States.

The £6m recruit from Ituano got off to the perfect start when he chested a cross in from Dominic Thompson to seal a 3-0 friendly win against Colorado Rapids.

Supporters on Twitter were very happy with Martinelli’s first contribution for the Gunners:

With new technical director Edu reportedly having been behind the Brazilian ace’s signing, it appears that at first glance, he has made a decent decision in bringing the 18-year-old in.

Fans will be hoping for many more signings over the coming weeks, though, with the likes of Gremio’s Everton and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney said to be in the club’s sights.

For Martinelli and Unai Emery, though, their focus will be purely on the club’s pre-season tour. The Gunners face Bayern Munich on Thursday and Fiorentina on Saturday before a match against Real Madrid next week.
