Gabriel Martinelli speaks out on Arsenal’s decision to sign Leandro Trossard

Gabriel Martinelli speaks out on Arsenal’s decision to sign Leandro Trossard

Gabriel Martinelli has supported Arsenal’s acquisition of Leandro Trossard, believing that his new teammate will become a “very important player” for Mikel Arteta’s squad.

After losing the race to sign Mykhailo Mudryk to Chelsea this month, Arsenal completed a £27 million deal for Trossard with Brighton last week.

The Belgium international, whose contract with Brighton expired in the summer, made his debut in the 82nd minute of Sunday’s 3-2 victory over Manchester United, replacing Martinelli.

Martinelli, who has scored seven Premier League goals this season, has praised the Gunners’ most recent acquisition.

When questioned about Arsenal’s decision to sign Trossard, Martinelli told ESPN Brasil: “He’ll be a very important player for us. We know his quality.

“He did very well at Brighton and will certainly help a lot. And we are trying to welcome him in the best possible way so that he can be calm and show his football.”

Arsenal’s victory over United extends their lead over Manchester City to five points, despite Pep Guardiola’s side having played one more game.

Arsenal are now the favorites to win their first league title since 2004, and Martinelli believes that his teammates are in the proper mindset to win.

“We have a winning mentality,” Martinelli said.

“We always go on the pitch to win and we have to keep doing that if we want to be champions.

“It does not depend on age, but on the mentality and the desire to win every game.”
