martinelli red-hot wonderkid!

FACTPACK Full name: Gabriel Teodoro Martinelli Silva Age: 18 Club: Arsenal Born: Brazil Position: Forward Boots: adidas X 19+ GABI’S STORY! The top-quality teenager had four trials at Man. United, and even played alongside Mason Greenwood, but The Red Devils never offered him a contract. Mad! After scoring six goals in 14 matches in Sao Paulo’s top state division, he was voted the Best Newcomer and named in the league’s 2019 Team Of The Year! Arsenal paid Ituano £6 million for him last summer, and he made an instant impact with doubles in the Europa League and EFL Cup on his first two starts! He scored on his full PL debut against West Ham too, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s ban gave him the chance to become one of The Gunners’ key attackers!

new villan… mbwana samatta

FACTFILE Full Name: Mbwana Ally Samatta Age: 27 Country: Tanzania Position: Striker Boots: Nike Mercurial THE DEAL!

He’s signed a deal until 2024 and is the first Tanzanian to play in the Prem! NEW BENTEKE? Samatta isn’t the first forward to move from Genk to Villa Park. Christian Benteke took the same route in 2012, and his net-busters helped keep Villa in the Prem for the next three campaigns! Can Samatta have a similar impact GOAL MACHINE! Samatta’s already scored in England this year, after nodding in at Anfield in the Champions League.

tottenham rebuild!

SO LONG, CHRISTIAN! Eriksen will go down in Spurs’ history as one of their best-ever players! He bagged a record 62 Prem assists for them, and is the league’s top-scoring Dane with 51 goals! On top of that, he scored two and created four goals on the road to last season’s CL final, so he’s been a top baller! THE NEXT ERIKSEN? Tottenham already have Eriksen’s direct replacement after signing midfielder Giovani Lo Celso permanently from Real Betis for £27.2 million! He’s been able to adapt to the pace of the Prem during his loan spell, and put in some awesome Man Of The Match displays last month! WHO’S NEXT? The signing of PSV forward Steven Bergwijn adds more pace to their attack, and means Jose Mourinho can rotate with Heung-Min Son, who’s looked knackered…
