Gabriel Martinelli extends Arsenal contract The Brazilian receives a new working paper with a long-term term. Martinelli's original contract with the Gunners ran until 2024 (with an option for two more years).
With seven goals and two assists in the Premier League, Gabriel Martinelli is one of the faces of Arsenal FC's outstanding season. Unsurprisingly, the Gunners have long-term plans for the 21-year-old Brazilian. As reported by The Athletic's David Ornstein, Martinelli has now extended his contract with the north Londoners on a long-term basis.
The new contract is to run for four and a half years, i.e. until the summer of 2027. The attacker’s working paper originally expired in 2024, but Arsenal would have had the option of two more years. Arsenal are thus providing Martinelli with clarity early on. Any interest and transfer requests in the summer, which would hardly be surprising given the youngster's strong season, Arsenal have thus nipped in the bud early on. Arsenal should officially report completion in the coming days.
