ARSENAL forward Gabriel Martinelli has teased fans of exciting news with a cryptic post on social media.

The 20-year-old, who penned a long-term contract at the Emirates last year, was limited to just 14 Premier League appearances in the 2020-21 season due to injury.

But big things are expected of the Brazilian in North London, who is a popular figure among the club's fanbase.

And Martinelli has left his supporters excited ahead of the new campaign after tweeting out an hourglass emoji.

Fans believe that an announcement is due, with some claiming that it could be a new number for the youngster.

Martinelli currently wears the No35, but the No10 is vacant following Mesut Ozil's exit, along with the No8.

Meanwhile the No11 is set to become available with Lucas Torreira poised to depart Arsenal, with Martin Odegaard using the number during his loan spell.

Commenting on Martinelli's post, one user tweeted: "New kit number incoming."

Another remarked: "Announcing our new No10 next season."

A third asked: "Gabi are we expecting a new shirt number? Don't wanna be getting the wrong one on my shirt!"

Meanwhile one predicted: "Taking Laca's number 9."

Another added: "New number? Can't be carrying 35 to win Ballon d'Or."

One simply stated: "Man is signing a new contract."
