A former Arsenal star claims that manager Mikel Arteta does not like Gabriel Martinelli, who has dropped down the pecking order.
The Brazilian striker missed the early parts of the season with a couple injuries but since his return, he has had make do with a cameos off the bench.
Gunners legend Martin Keown feels Arteta is not a fan a of the Brazilian starlet, who has received high praise from Jurgen Klopp.
"Because the manager doesn’t like him. It’s as simple as that.
"I’m not there every day, I’m not on the training ground.
"I thought it was very interesting that [Martin] Odegaard had gone internationally and said ‘in training this is the best young player I’ve ever seen’. And he’s from Real Madrid.
"So now it’s time to let him fly. Let’s look at the positives. Let’s support him.
"When he came into the team I thought he did a great job. Not only was he making runs down the middle but he was coming back. He was like a Duracell battery.
"Keep him in the team. Play him. You’ve seen what you’ve done with [Emile] Smith Rowe and [Bukayo] Saka. Support the young players, that’s where the energy is coming from."
Arsenal have reportedly put six players for up sale!
