Gabriel Martinelli has signed a new contract with the club, committing his long-term future with us.
The 21-year-old, now into his fourth season in north London, has already made 111 first-team appearances in all competitions during his action-packed Arsenal career.
The Brazil international, who represented his country at the recent World Cup in Qatar, made 36 first-team appearances last season and was voted our Player of the Month in both December 2021 and January 2022.
The young forward’s good form has continued into this season, being an ever-present in our Premier League starting line-up for the first 19 matches of the campaign and has made 27 appearances in all competitions so far, netting seven times in the process.
Sporting Director Edu said: “It’s great that Gabi has signed a new contract with us. The foundations of our squad continue to be built on young talent, so it’s great that Gabi has signed a new contract.
“Gabi is still just 21, and a player with big ability and personality. He is an important part of our future and we’re delighted that we have agreed a new contract.”
Manager Mikel Arteta added: “We’re delighted Gabi has signed a new long-term contract. Our supporters see his quality and energy every single time he puts on the shirt and he’s the same every day in training, with his hard work and positive values.
“Gabi is still very young, so we know there’s still much more to come from him and it’s great that we’ll be on this journey together. We’re now excited to continue to develop his huge talent and look forward to seeing him perform with Arsenal in the years to come.”
