1 min read

Gabriel Martinelli has confirmed he has held talks with Arsenal over an extension to his contract.

The 21-year-old has entered the final two years of his current deal – Arsenal have an option to extend by a further year – and manager Mikel Arteta is keen to hand him a lucrative extension to reward his emergence as a regular starter.

Asked whether he wants to stay at the Emirates, Martinelli told The Athletic: “Of course, I want to stay. We are talking. Let’s see what is going to happen.

“But I want to stay, of course.”

Martinelli has started all nine of Arsenal’s Premier League games so far, chipping in with four goals and two assists for good measure.

He played a starring role in Sunday’s 3-2 victory over Liverpool, opening the scoring inside the first minute before setting up Bukayo Saka for the second goal before the interval.
