Former Red wants Arsenal star at Anfield

Emile Heskey believes Gabriel Martinelli would be a good fit for Liverpool.

The 21-year-old Brazilian forward opened the scoring in the first minute and ran rings around the Liverpool defence during Arsenal’s 3-2 win at the Emirates last week.

“I can’t see Arsenal letting Gabriel Martinelli go any time soon, but he’d definitely be someone I would be looking at if I was Liverpool,” Heskey told the Echo.

“If you look at that aggression in his game, and the way he’s played so far this season, there aren’t many out there with his ability. He’s up and down the pitch, non-stop, for 90 minutes. He’s got the ability to drive at players, pull them in and out of positions.

“He’s confident and comfortable on the ball to a point where, as a defender, you aren’t quite sure whether he’s going to have a shot, put a cross in or take you on. He’s a fantastic player, and someone who everyone would love to play with and hate to play against. He gives you no time whatsoever.
