Martinelli Finally Reveals the Jersey Number he wants and Threatens to Leave if not Given

The Arsenal Brazilian striker has made it clear the number on the back if his Jersey he wants to put on his back next season or he might leave the club if not given.

Martinelli has not made it hidden that he has strong admiration for Aubameyang and wants to follow in his footsteps by actually wearing his Jersey number 14.

Gabriel Martinelli in February 2021: “I want to follow in Aubameyang’s footsteps, he’s a captain, he wears the #14 shirt. That is a symbol for this club & of course, I hope to be very successful at Arsenal.” [ESPN]

Aubameyang left Arsenal on not so clear grounds with the board as they threatened to freeze him out of the club following series of bad behaviour and lack of discipline.

He is now signed to Barcelona during the January winter transfer window as he mutually terminated his Arsenal contract.
