Granit Xhaka has urged Arsenal team-mate Gabriel Martinelli to ‘push himself’ in order to become ‘one of the best’ players in the world.

The Brazilian has cemented a place in Arsenal’s starting line-up this season and taken his game to new levels under Mikel Arteta.

The 21-year-old attracted attention from a host of European heavyweights before joining the Gunners in a £6m deal in 2019.

Martinelli’s netted three goals so far this season and he’s been a constant fixture with the Gunners taking 21 points from their first eight matches.

A significant part of the side’s start has been the form of Xhaka, with the Switzerland international now the most experienced figure in this young Arsenal side.

‘Gabriel Martinelli has a lot to be one of the best,’ said Xhaka.

‘He goes 100mph. He has to push himself with how far he can go.

‘He has the team and everything around the help him.’

Martinelli is vying for a place in Brazil’s World Cup squad but he was not included for his country over the international break.

The winger is competing with the likes of Neymar, Vinicius and Antony for a spot on the plane to Qatar.
