The Gunners have begun negotiations with the representatives of Gabriel Martinelli over a new contract extension, but they will have to offer a bumper lot of money to retain the services of the 21-year-old Brazilian star.
Arsenal will have to agree double Gabriel Martinelli’s current contract at the Emirates should they wish to keep him in the club, according to reports.
The Brazilian winger has been in fine form so far this season, with one goal and four assists to his name already as Arsenal sit top of the EPL table. And against Liverpool, he scored after 58 seconds, before terrorising the Liverpool right flank to the point where Trent Alexander-Arnold was substituted at half-time by Jurgen Klopp.
Martinelli, Saka and William Saliba have been the vocal point of Arsenal in the early stages of the season. They are all just 21 years old. Arsenal want to retain each of them to new contracts, in order to build around them in years to come.
Talks are underway with the representatives of all three players.
Martinelli re-affirmed his commitment to Arsenal, telling reporters:
“Of course, I want to stay. We are talking. Let’s see what is going to happen. But I want to stay, of course”.
“I think Arsenal is a big club and we have a lot of good players”, he continued. “I think you guys can see from the outside our hunger and our mentality. We want to win every single game and I think everyone can see that”.
