Gabriel Martinelli agrees to terms on a new long-term contract that will keep him with the Gunners for another 4.5 years 

The recent developments are additional encouraging news for Mikel Arteta’s side, who have now ensured the long-term viability of one of their many rising talents at an early age. The previous agreement between Martinelli and the Gunners was set to expire at the end of the following season.

Arteta and Edu reportedly succeeded in persuading the attacker to put pen to paper on a new long-term deal so that he would devote his future to the club. The matter that had been concerning the attacker has finally been settled. The Brazilian has had an outstanding season thus far, scoring seven goals to lead his team to the top spot in the Premier League standings at the halfway point of the competition.

In spite of the many reasons for optimism over Arsenal’s decision to extend Martinelli’s contract, the club still has two other contractual issues that must be resolved before it can properly rejoice.

Arsenal has demonstrated that they are most surely moving in the right path under Arteta’s leadership. However, neither Bukayo Saka nor William Saliba have yet followed Martinelli’s example and committed their long-term futures to the club. Arteta himself provided an update on Saliba’s ongoing contract negotiations shortly before the turn of the year, and no one will be more eager than he is to sign the two to long-term deals than he will be.

Arteta was questioned by the media about his defender’s future, and he responded by saying, “That’s more to Edu and the board to be negotiating with him.” The Frenchman’s current deal is about to enter its final year this summer, and Arteta was asked about it.”

“What I do know is that the player is quite content, and that the gamer has a strong desire to be here. That is the most important thing. There are a few of those customers for whom we are prepared to prolong the contract.”

“Willy is one of them, as you know. I believe that in the months that he has been working with us, he has demonstrated the level of quality and the personality that are necessary for him to play at the level that we want. We are making an effort to achieve so because we are aware that he has the potential to play a really significant role in our objectives.”

Even though it has been a little bit longer since he really addressed Saka’s predicament, he was just as positive about the England ace’s future when they discussed it in August of last year.

“I am quite convinced that we as a club, Bukayo and his family and agency are all aligned,” he asserted. “I am very confident that we are all aligned.” The next step is to write all of that down on a sheet of paper.

Because I don’t want the players to be distracted while we’re in the middle of the season, I really hope that can be accomplished. However, all of this requires some time.
