    Rio Ferdinand has named Gabriel Martinelli as one of his top five Premier League wonderkids.

    Speaking in an Instagram Q and A Ferdinand said: “I watched him against Bournemouth away, I watched him against Chelsea…

    “He is a proper player, I think he’ll be a major player in world football in years to come. To be 18-years-old and do what he is doing.

    “The goal against Chelsea alone, he’s got the composure to slot it. A great player, but his awareness and intelligence is mad.”
