Arsenal have today announced on the clubs official website Arsenal.com that the Gunners have re-signed German youngster Serge Gnabry on a new long term contract. Gnabry, who is just 18 years old has impressed immensely for the Gunners so far this season, making a few appearances for the first team already.
Having also scored a goal in the league game against Swansea, Gnabry is already on his rise to stardom as one of the club’s most promising players at this current moment in time and the way he is developing at such a rate means that everyone is very much looking forward to the exciting young prospect we have on our books. Arsene Wenger announced the contract extension in today’s press conference ahead of the Capital One Cup game against Chelsea, which I’m sure the man in question, Serge Gnabry, will surely partake in.
Wenger said: “We signed Serge Gnabry because I believe that he will be a great player. He’s nearly there now, and competes for a regular place in the team in the Premier League. He has technical ability, he has power, he has pace, he has finishing quality and he can give a final ball. He’s a powerful offensive player and I believe that he will be a great player for Arsenal Football Club.”
Gnabry too had his say on the contract extension a little later and he seemed very happy to commit to the club for the mean time at least.
“Arsenal is a great football club and I’m so happy to be here and sign a new contract. For me, now it’s all about working hard and developing my game. I’ve had some good opportunities recently in the first team, which has given me extra confidence, and this will only improve my game. I’m looking forward to giving my best for this club in the years to come.”
Arsenal has given Gnabry a chance that he may not have had if he had never joined the Gunners. To be an 18 year old, flourishing in the Premier League means you are surely going to be something special. Right now though he cannot let the confidence get to his head and he needs to keep his feet on the ground, concentrate on improving his qualities and only then will he be well on his way to becoming a top professional footballer. Keep it up Serge!
