Cesc Fabregas names the current Arsenal player he'd love to play with
Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas admits he’d love to play alongside Gunners forward Gabriel Martinelli.
The teenager signed for the club last summer in a £6million deal from Ituano and has been one of the club’s few positives this term, scoring ten goals in 26 appearances for the Gunners,
With doubt hanging over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future, Arsenal can take heart from the fact that they have one of the most promising youngsters in Europe in their squad and Martinelli is already attracting attention from Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Fabregas was once the wonderkid in north London and the Spaniard knows all about carrying the burden of expectation at Arsenal.
The midfielder is now at Monaco and during a Q&A on Twitter this afternoon, Fabregas was asked to name the Arsenal player that he’d like to play alongside.
Fabregas was in no doubt that the player was Martinelli.
Fabregas spent seven years in north London and was made club captain before a £34m move to Barcelona in 2011.
The Spaniard was a hugely popular figure in north London and stuck with the club through their difficult move between Highbury and the Emirates.
Fabregas was asked which stadium he preferred and the midfielder admits he thought Highbury was ‘special.
‘One of the toughest questions i’ve seen around here,’ said Fabregas.
‘Highbury was so so special…but the Emirates felt like home straight away’.
