Arsenal in Dubai: Gabriel Martinelli shows off ripped physique as Bukayo Saka trolled for ashy skin

It has been quite a season for Arsenal. From the struggles at the beginning of the season, they have quite miraculously turned the tables and are now competing for fourth place. One of the key aspects of their strong performances is their fresh young talents. Aaron Ramsdale, Nuno Tavares, Emile Smith Rowe, Martin Ødegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka have all been sensational throughout the season. 

However, despite always being in the spotlight for the Arsenal games, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli have been trending on social media for a very different reason altogether. 

Martinelli’s stunning transformation

In Gabriel Martinelli’s debut season for Arsenal, he had missed out on some of the games due to injuries. Martinelli had joined as a stringy youngster, however, he stunned the Arsenal fans with his physical transformation with intensive weight training sessions during the lockdown. The young Brazilian striker had posted a picture of him training in the garden and the fans had gone gaga. 

Since then, Martinelli has gained a great reputation in the Emirates stadium as one of the star players in the squad. Cesc Fabregas had named him as one of the players in the current squad he wished he could’ve played with. 

As Arsenal prepare for the next match with a warm-weather training camp in Dubai, Martinelli had been trending on Twitter for yet another muscular picture. A picture has been circulating on social media of Martinelli in a training session and his muscular frame makes him look more ripped than before. 

Fans have praised his look once again, calling him “Gabriel Musclenelli”.

Another fan commented, “he’s been absorbing the power of every player that’s left for free”.

Fans are expecting him to put his muscles to good use in the next match against Wolves.

Saka needs body cream

Saka has been doing pretty well this season with the Gunners, scoring crucial goals against Norwich and Newcastle. He was also key in giving table-leaders Manchester City a tough time in their home match. However, after all the turmoil that this season has brought, it’s time to relax and chill.

And so he does. The 20-year-old posted on Instagram a picture from his holiday, where he is seen chilling in a cruiser. He is also seen enjoying a can of Fanta.

However, what caught most people’s attention was not Saka’s enigmatic smile or the beautiful view behind him, but his ashy legs!

The comment section went wild pointing at the rough patchy legs of Saka. Most of the users asked Saka to use some lotions for his feet. People brought their favourite brands into the limelight as well asking Saka to use Vaseline, while the rest asked him to use Cocoa Butter.

Other footballers also couldn’t stop themselves from commenting. Jordi Tutu, who is on loan from Arsenal asked “No cream?” Nicolas Pepe commented “U need cream”, while Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha said “Omg your legs bro”.

However, Saka seems to be oblivious to these comments while he surely is enjoying himself before the important fixture at Molineux Stadium.
