Arsenal fans convinced Gabriel Martinelli has dropped a hint about Jesus' arrival


 

Amid the club's ongoing pursuit of Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal's supporters have taken to Twitter on Sunday evening, to draw attention to the latest social media activity on the part of Gabriel Martinelli.

This comes with Mikel Arteta and co. understood to have identified the versatile Manchester City star as a prime target to reinforce the club's frontline ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Both Alexandre Lacazette and, potentially, Nicolas Pepe are in line for summer departures from the Emirates, making additions both on the right and through the middle an absolute necessity.

Jesus, capable of lining out in both positions, and with just a year left on his Man City contract, would, in turn, make plenty of sense as a high-profile addition to Arsenal's ranks.

Some outlets, over recent days, have even gone as far as to suggest that the personal terms of a contract have already been agreed upon between the two parties.

And now, as alluded to above, the Gunners faithful have had their attentions piqued once more.

On this occasion, the developments come owing to the actions of one of the club's current stars, in the form of Gabriel Martinelli.

Taking to his official Instagram account, attacker Martinelli unveiled a photo of himself, controlling the ball during a training session with the Brazilian national team.

Piquing the attentions of Arsenal's fans, though, is the presence of the aforementioned Jesus directly behind their up-and-coming wide-man.

Many, in turn, appear to be convinced that Martinelli's post was intended as something of a hint, ahead of a high-profile arrival at the Emirates over the weeks ahead:
