Martinelli deserves talks with Arsenal over new improved contract

Gabriel Martinelli is claimed to have opened talks with Arsenal over a new deal after a bright start to the new season.

The forward arrived in north London from the fourth tier in Brazilian football, and surprisingly made an instant impact. He scored a memorable goal against Chelsea amidst an eye-opening debut campaign, and earned plaudits from a number of pundits as well as coming in for huge acclaim by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also.

Martinelli was setback by an injury however, but in the last nine months he has once again showed just how much of a threat he can be to even the best of defences.

He started the new season in top form also with two goals from two games, and the club have now decided to open talks with the 21 year-old as we look to tie him down to a new long–term deal, despite having a fair amount of time left on his current terms.

  1. OT: Apparently also in for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Mykhaïlo Moudryk – described as “the Ukrainian Neymar”.

    1. Yes, Mykhaylo Mudryk is the winger to go for. Unbelievable talent at only 21. A rough diamond. It will be good for Zinchenkos well-being having another Ukrainian player in the squad.

  2. Judging by the team’s performance in our first three games,
    this could prove to be a very expensive season for Arsenal if they want to rewrite players contracts every time they have a few good games.

    Although I am not complaining!!!!

    1. Maybe, but at the moment he is out playing Saka who is distracted by the contract talks, to be honest, I would give him a rest for the next two games, either sign the contract or go, we do not need the distractions for the team

      1. True statement about Martinelli outplaying Saka.

        Saka needs to step it up, because right now if he had any competition he would be on the bench.

        No one should be above benching, so hopefully Saka can find his form and push on.

        Maybe he should get a game off to get his mind right. Clearly not 100% present in games lately, Arteta maybe right about contract distraction.

    2. Lol, Saka wasn’t on 45k. Ignore the rumors about earning the lowest in the team. It wasn’t true.
      However 45k probably would probably mean after tax which he’s also and england international.

  3. I’m more worried about salibas contract. Ends in 2024 – that needs extending ASAP as we’re rapidly losing leverage. He is playing well and looks happy, so probably a good time to push for it?
