Arsenal management are delighted with the progress and attitude of Gabriel Martinelli.

With 85 appearances, 19 goals, and 13 assists in all competitions under his belt, he is still celebrated among the Arsenal staff for his humble approach and ferocious work ethic on the pitch and at the club's London Colney training ground.

"I love him, honestly, I love him," assistant coach Steve Round told the latest instalment of the All or Nothing Arsenal docuseries. "He just needs time, that's all.'

Round marvels at Martinelli's sharpness and speed.

"He's a great kid," the coach told Edu, the club's technical director, as they sat in the canteen and watched Martinelli come in from training.

"He trains every day like it is his last day on earth. He is a diamond, he really is."
