Gabriel Martinelli tipped to join rivals Liverpool.
The Brazilian youngster has been featuring regularly under Arteta’s squad this season and are aiming for a top-four finish.
He has bagged five goals and three assists in 19 Premier League appearances this season and has attracted interest from other Premier League clubs.
Jurgen Klopp spoke highly of the Brazilian forward earlier this year which means Liverpool may consider a move for the youngster in the near future.
Former England goalkeeper David James believes Martinelli will be a great addition to the Reds squad.
James said: “Gabriel Martinelli is one player who I get excited by. If it was a choice between Martinelli and Raphinha, I would go for Martinelli.
“He’s young and he’s got everything you need. It’s almost like a slightly rawer [Luis] Diaz, and the beauty of Diaz is that he can play basically anywhere.
“Martinelli obviously occupies the left a lot more. I always think that with a good environment and age, you can manipulate a player into something else, and I think Martinelli fits that criteria.
“He’s young and more than capable. And I can imagine him in a Liverpool kit, doing what he does with Arsenal, if not better, and just fitting in seamlessly.”
