In their game against Liverpool, Gabriel Martinelli was named Man of the Match. He scored and assisted in Arsenal’s 3-2 victory over Liverpool. This season, he has four goals in nine games.
The 21-year- old’s contract is set to expire in 2024, but Arsenal intends to extend it until 2028. He’s reportedly asking for £200,000 per week, with Arsenal hoping to negotiate a lower figure.

Wright believes Gabriel Martinelli is deserving of whatever he desires:
“The way Arsenal went about that game and the way Gabriel Martinelli played… he was doing the work of two men.”
“He was blazing up and down that right side. I’m telling you, he’s the one! With Martinelli, if I’m Arsenal, I’m going in now and offering him whatever he wants.“
