Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp piles praise on Arsenal whiz Gabriel Martinelli as fans fear transfer raid after cup KO

JURGEN KLOPP praises Gabriel Martinelli after Liverpool beat Arsenal 2-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

The 20-year-old Brazilian looked good on the ball, but struggled to find a way past Trent Alexander-Arnold as the Reds defense remained stubborn the entire time.

But his energetic performance and positive attitude won praise from Klopp.

The German was asked about eventual opponents Chelsea but decided to talk about Martinelli instead.

He added: “Well Martinelli … everyone should remember that name. Excellent player.”

And Klopp’s praise of the winger has instilled fear among many Arsenal fans.

One Gunner wrote on Twitter: “Yeah, I think they have their eyes on our two kids as replacements for Mane and Salah.”

Another said: “Trying to woo him to Liverpool for the next two or three seasons … we should renew him as soon as possible.”

A third continued the same theme, saying: “You can’t find him or doubt, or deceive.”

Another fan said: “Martinelli is a dream player for Klopp.

“Incredible pace and energy, plus his pressure is so good. Hits the ball more wins than players up front. I hope he stays healthy—he’ll be a top player for years to come.”

Liverpool have also been tipped to sign Bukayo Saka as a possible long-term replacement for Sadio Mane.
