Martinelli Not Decided Between Brazil and Italy Yet
Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli says he has not yet decided whether to represent Brazil or Italy internationally, the player holds dual nationality.
He has represented Brazil at junior levels and was born and raised in the country but has an Italian passport and can represent them too.
“I have the option to play for Brazil or Italy, but I haven’t decided anything yet. I’m focused on doing my job right here at Arsenal, anything else is a consequence of that,” he told Estadão.
The 18-year old has also revealed that the club’s Sporting Director and compatriot Edu Gaspar is also a driving force for him behind the scenes.
“We have a lot of contact, he is a really good guy who is always talking to me and giving me advice. He helps me keep my feet on the ground.
“I want to make my story with this shirt and repay everything the fans are doing for me and score lots of goals and win lots of titles.”
