Serge Gnabry commits future to Gunners.
Serge Gnabry has signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal, the club have announced.
The 18-year-old winger has taken advantage of injuries to Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to force his way into the first team reckoning this season, and scored his first goal for the club in the 2-1 win at Swansea last month.
Boss Arsene Wenger believes the Germany youth international will go on to be a ‘great’ player for Arsenal.
“We signed Serge Gnabry because I believe that he will be a great player. He’s nearly there now, and competes for a regular place in the team in the Premier League,” said the Frenchman.
“He has technical ability, he has power, he has pace, he has finishing quality and he can give a final ball. He’s a powerful offensive player and I believe that he will be a great player for Arsenal Football Club.”
Gnabry said: “Arsenal is a great football club and I’m so happy to be here and sign a new contract. For me, now it’s all about working hard and developing my game.
“I’ve had some good opportunities recently in the first team, which has given me extra confidence, and this will only improve my game. I’m looking forward to giving my best for this club in the years to come.”
