Gabriel Martinelli secures new "long-term" contract at Arsenal

Brazilian striker Gabriel Martinelli has committed his future to Arsenal by signing a new long-term contract with the Gunners.

The 19-year-old Brazilian under-23 international has scored 10 goals in 26 appearances in his debut season for the Premier League club.

He's the first teenager to score 10 or more goals in a season for Arsenal since Nicolas Anelka back in 2000.

Martinelli has become the second young forward to agree an extension with the Gunners this week, following on from Bukayo Saka who signed a new deal on Wednesday.

"I am very happy that Gabi has signed a new contract with us," Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said of the deal. "He is a very talented young player and he has impressed us with his performances, attitude and work-rate.

"We are looking forward to getting him back to full fitness and to watching his development at our club."

Speaking ahead of the Gunners' trip to Wolves tomorrow evening, Arteta added that there some positive signs from his squad in recent weeks:

"I would still like to see it in a more consistent way, with more speed and more intent at times"

"But the structure is getting there, whether we are playing with one formation or another, and so is the flexibility, the rotation of positions, the movement and the patterns of play.

"There are some good signs."
