The Brazilian discussed some of the goals he has scored this season, including his chip against Leeds at Elland Road.

He also offered advice to youngsters hoping to be a forward like him one day – before he was rudely interrupted by White.

The Arsenal defender smashed a ball into the back of an empty net behind where Martinelli was being interviewed.

So he shouted “Ben!…I’m working.”

Martinelli is half Italian and possesses an Italian passport, but he has chosen to represent Brazil at international level.

He won his first two Brazil caps in March playing against Chile and Bolivia, getting into the side ahead of Gunners transfer target Gabriel Jesus.

The Manchester City star’s representatives are in talks with Arsenal over a move, with Jesus said to be keen on the project in place in north London.

Arsenal are believed to have submitted a £43million bid for the forward who could become their first summer signing.
