Gabriel Martinelli news

Martinelli suffers ankle ligament injury

Arsenal have received a fresh injury blow with Gabriel Martinelli ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

The Brazilian sustained an ankle injury in the 3-0 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion after a heavy tackle from Moises Caicedo.

Martinelli was happy to continue after the incident but he was eventually substituted midway through the half.

The attacker was spotted wearing a protective boot after the game and he is now expected to miss the final two games.

Martinelli has suffered an ankle ligament injury but he is anticipated to make his comeback in time for pre-season.

The former Ituano graduate has had a tremendous campaign and he is currently the club's joint top-scorer with 15 goals.

Martin Odegaard shares the feat with Martinelli and will have the chance to leapfrog him over the last two league matches.

Arsenal can finish with a maximum of 87 points. They look set to end up as runners-up to Manchester City in the league.
