Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will hand German starlet Gedion Zelalem a new three-year deal.

The Daily Mail suggest the Gunners will look to tie the 17-year-old midfielder down to a long-term deal to keep him away from the clutches of Europe's top teams.

Wenger is expected to hand the teenager the chance to impress during this summer's pre-season schedule - before throwing him into the deep end next season.

Zelalem, who is eligible to play for Germany, Ethiopia and the United States, has made just one appearance for Arsenal's first team so far this season.

The attacking midfielder came on for the last 19 minutes against League One side Coventry in the FA Cup.

Zelalem has also been named on the substitutes' bench for three Premier League matches but is yet to play a competitive minute in England's top-flight division.

Fellow German youngster Serge Gnabry is also expected to be handed more first-team opportunities next season.
