Arsenal starlet Serge Gnabry has agreed a new long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium, it was confirmed today.
The German youngster joined Arsenal in 2011 and has since made four Premier League appearances for the first team.
Gnabry got his first goal for the Gunners in their league clash against Swansea, and made his début in the Champions League against Schalke last season.
The talented midfielder has been rewarded for his development with a new deal, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes he is primed to force his way into the first team more regularly in the future.
“We signed Serge Gnabry because I believe that he will be a great player," he told Arsenal.com.
"He's nearly there now, and competes for a regular place in the team in the Premier League.
"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 made his debut for Arsenal last year in a League Cup clash against Coventry, while he became the second-youngest player to appear for the Gunners in the Premier League when he made his league bow against Norwich last October.
“Arsenal is a great football club and I’m so happy to be here and sign a new contract," he said.
"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.”
