A low price tag and young age means little is expected of Gabriel Martinelli at Arsenal this season.

He could become their secret weapon and start making a name for himself immediately.

Martinelli was in action last night for Arsenal in a friendly with Angers.

 

Arsenal won the game on penalties, with Martinelli looking impressive.

The 18-year-old Brazilian cost Arsenal just £6 million.

His addition has been overshadowed by the incoming deal for Lille's Nicolas Pepe, at more than 10 times the price.

Martinelli could end up looking excellent value for money, regardless of how Pepe does.

In pre-season he has not looked daunted, getting on the scoresheet on his debut, and last night linking up well with goalscorer Reiss Nelson.

It's early days, but Martinelli's pre-season performances are encouraging.

Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to his performance...
