Gabriel Martinelli is already getting along with Arsenal's potential summer signing, Gabriel Jesus. Since last year, Arsenal has been discussing with Gabriel Jesus' entourage regarding a summer move to the Emirates.
The club has made Jesus their top striker target after renewing Eddie Nketiah's contract. Gabriel Jesus is currently away on international duties with the Brazillian national team alongside Arsenals Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Magalhães as the team prepares for their upcoming friendlies against Japan tomorrow.
