Arsenal man insists he is going nowhere despite rumours

Arsenal star Gabriel Martinelli has no desire to leave the club and insists he just needs a pen to sign a new contract.

The Brazilian has emerged as one of the key fixtures in the current Arsenal team as they compete at the top of the Premier League table.

The attacker has been so impressive it is hard to see anyone bench him in the starting XI any time soon.

Arsenal will reward him with a new deal, but he has not signed one yet amidst interest from clubs outside the Emirates.

Some fans are worried that another team could poach him from them, but the former Ituano man insists he is an Arsenal man and is going nowhere.

He said via The Daily Mail:

‘I’m very happy at Arsenal. I said it many times. This is my club. I love to be here, I love the city, the club, everything about Arsenal. I want to stay. I’m very happy. 

‘They just need a pen.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Martinelli is one player we cannot lose and it is refreshing to hear him say he is committed to the club.

The attacker has been such an important part of our success story this season and we need him to continue performing well for us as a team.

  1. Plain and simple and i love it!!!!In few years time this team will be a force to be reconed with…..Arteta is showing us PROGRESS and direction so long may it continue

  2. Love hearing that from a player, from someone who actually wants to be at the club and build something together with the club.

    Perhaps a different tune in several years without trophies or title challenges, but again, who knows except Martinelli himself.

    Crucial we keep this core together as long as possible, and the steady rise of their wages can be offset by not having significant transfer expenditures over the next couple years.

  3. It speaks well of Martinelli to show his hand, showing his future commitment to the club. Many players leave it to the agents and then make fans sweat it out a little bit, but not Martinelli, he’s a great kid

  4. I reckon hs agent will NOT be happy hearing Gabby say he is happy here and only needs a pen. That will hugely undermine the agents ability to hold our club to ransom for huger wages still.
    Great for we fans to hear of course but I BET HIS AGENT HAS HAD A WORD IN HIS SHELL LIKE EAR.
    What would REALLY be great, would be if all agents were banned permanently and never used ever again. Some vain hope of that though!

    1. Exactly what I was about to write!

      Presumably the delays are agents trying to up the contract value, claiming he’s listening to other offers etc… so hopefully with the cat now well and truly out of the bag, it will get done 🙂

  5. It’s a comment not usually heard from the player himself but I think his attitude is great news to us followers,of the club.?
