The Brazil attacker could be a market opportunity in the coming years

Barcelona are closely following Arsenal and Brazil's Gabriel Martinelli at the World Cup -- and could make a move for him next season.

At 21, the forward is one of Arsenal's stars and could be a real market opportunity if he does not renew his contract because in June he will move into the final year of his contract. Barça have very good references and are fully informed of his situation.

The Catalan club know they will have to further strengthen during next summer's transfer window and are tracking promising young footballers with international experience.

Martinelli has been followed throughout this season and is also being watched closely at the World Cup in Qatar.

He is a player who can play in various attacking positions, has very good technique and has shown an eye for goal in the Premier League. In fact, he is one of the star players in an Arsenal side that lead the table, ahead of Manchester City.

Martinelli, en el Mundial con Brasil


Arsenal have been trying to renew his contract for weeks, but there is still no agreement. It is true that there is a good predisposition from both parties to sign a deal for four more seasons and the player has stated that he is comfortable in London, but he is also aware of the interest from the Blaugrana.

Barça maintain a very good relationship with the player's camp and are awaiting developments.
