Arsenal star Gabriel Martinelli has not featured since March due to a knee problem but the Brazilian is working hard and will return to training soon.
Though the 19-year-old hopes to be back in action before the year is out, opening up on the struggles he has had.
Martinelli told Arsenal Player: “I’m feeling very well, I’m regaining confidence and I can feel my knee is better.
“After an injury like this you are kind of scared to force the knee again but the past couple of weeks it has been fine and soon I can start training with the ball.
“I think we have an excellent squad and along with Mikel’s forward-thinking and winning mentality we can carry on doing well.
“We are playing well and training well, everyone wants to win and we are all giving everything. I believe this season is very promising.
“We won trophies last season and I believe we can win this season again and also qualify for the Champions League.”
Arsenal travel to Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
