“Martinelli obviously occupies the left much more.

“I always think that with a good environment and age you can manipulate a player into something else and I think Martinelli fits that criteria.

“He is young and more than capable. And I can see him in a Liverpool kit doing what he does with Arsenal, if not better, and just fitting in seamlessly.

“If you look at Liverpool recruitment, the ages of the players they buy – they’re young: they say, ‘We have the team now, but what will it be like in the future? ‘ and they get these players to fill in those blanks, where, if [Roberto] firmin, [Sadio] Mané, Salah are out, they will be ready to replace them.”

“I want to conquer things, I’ve said before, I want to stay here and win titles, with this wonderful crowd, my team-mates.

“We have a young group, we have a lot of time ahead of us, players with a lot of quality, I think we will achieve great things.

“Our focus [today] is the Champions League. Battle for the top 4. A club like Arsenal has to be in the Champions League. We are fully concentrating on that.”
