Arsenal star Gabriel Martinelli is a big fan favourite at the Emirates Stadium, and his latest tweet has endeared him even more to the Gunners supporters.
The 19-year-old, who joined Arsenal from Brazilian side Ituano FC in the summer of 2019 for £6million, has thoroughly impressed since his arrival in North London.
Last season, Martinelli weighed in with 10 goals, becoming the first teenage goalscorer to reach double figures for Arsenal since Nicolas Anelka in 1998-99, plus four assists.
A long-term injury ruled him out for several months but he was back in action by December, his return to the fold helping Arsenal’s form pick up massively.
There was a big scare at the weekend as Martinelli sustained an injury during the warm-up ahead of the FA Cup third-round tie with Newcastle.
Given that he spent most of 2020 on the sidelines, there were obviously concerns that he may be set for another lengthy spell out of the team.
Luckily, Martinelli will only be out for a short period of time, the club confirming on their official website on Tuesday that he will return to training in the coming days.
And in wake of the positive news, the youngster took to Twitter with a message for the fanbase – pictures of him posing at the Emirates and a five-word caption “lucky to call this home”.
