Arsenal makes keeping in-form player a primary goal

Arsenal knows Gabriel Martinelli’s form this season will see clubs become interested in the 21-year-old

The striker has become one of the key men at the Emirates in this campaign as Arsenal look to break back inside the top four.

Mikel Arteta’s men flying right now as they sit atop the league table and they must keep their top players happy.

They are in talks with Martinelli over a contract extension, but that doesn’t mean the Brazilian will not attract other suitors.

A report on AS maintains he has many of them at the moment, but Arsenal will not allow him to leave.

It reveals the Gunners have made getting him on a new long-term contract a matter of necessity.

They believe he is also enjoying his time in London and will agree to a contract extension with them.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Martinelli is so crucial for us this season that losing him to injury could derail our season.

He has patiently worked his way into the team, and he is now one of the players we must keep to maintain our push for a top-four finish.

It is natural that clubs are circling, but that gives us an opportunity to show we mean business as well.

  1. This kid is going no where, put £170 gran a week on the table let him sign on the dotted line.
    Next up Saliba with £150 gran a week and move on

  2. I think its important to manage expectations with our young stars as well as treat them correctly.

    I think martinelli, saliba, saka all deserve to be on 100k plus now. However I think around 150k is correct with options to increase.

    Hopefully we have learnt from players like ozil and auba that chucking money at then doesn’t guarantee loyalty or that they will continue to work hard. I have been watching kylian mbappe for a while as I’m sure we all have and thought what a stupid move when psg gave him stupid wages and power to make decisions about the club.

    I hope we give these young stars what they deserve but also remember that this is one season and make sure that they understand their wages are earn by continued high class performances. Not simply by showing up.
