Rio Ferdinand claims Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka will forge a “scary relationship” for Arsenal.
The Gunners had not had a good start to the season but have turned things around with two wins on the bounce over Chelsea and Brighton.

And Ferdinand has been particularly impressed by the young Arsenal pair.
“I watched Martinelli at Bournemouth away last season,” Ferdinand told FIVE.
“Him and Saka together, they have a link up and a relationship that’s already there that I think in years to come will be a scary relationship. Scary!
“They work so well together. And Tierney as well backing it up. But Martinelli, I have to say is going to be a tremendous footballer. Top player.
“He has come back into this team and he is showing what all the fuss was about before. He is going to be a huge, huge player. Massive talent. I just hope he can stay fit. Saka, him as well.”
