REPORTS: Arsenal forward ready to quit the club in January due to lack of playing time

Without any doubts, Arsenal football club were one of the very busy Premier League clubs during the just concluded summer transfer window.

The North London club are keen competing with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea for trophies this season and brought in some players including Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard.

However, that has not quite worked out so far as the Gunners are currently sitted in 11th position on the Premier League table heading into the international break.

And even with that, Arsenal could now be rocked with reports that young forward Gabriel Martinelli is keen on leaving the club when the transfer window opens next year.

The 20-year-old Brazil International who joined Arsenal after departing Brazilian side Ituano in 2019 has been quite impressive since he made the move.

The young forward was an important member of the Arsenal team last season where he scored two goals and provided two assists in 23 appearances in all competitions.

However, Gabriel Martinelli has struggled to break into the first team this season and has only recorded one assist in four appearances so far.

It is believed that the winger is disappointed with his lack of regular game time and according to reports from The Sun, Gabriel Martinelli is ready to force his way out of the Emirates Stadium when the transfer window opens.

The young forward has struggled to displace the likes of Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, Emile Smith-Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the Arsenal starting eleven and he could now be willing to leave the club.

However, it remains to be seen if Arsenal will be interested in offloading him as they view him as an important player for the future.
