Gabriel Martinelli is currently under contract with the Gunners until 2024, but Arsenal is proposing a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2028.
He’s had a fantastic start to the season, scoring four goals in nine games. On Sunday, his goal and assist against Liverpool gave Arsenal a deserved 3-2 victory.
According to reports, the 21-year-old is demanding wages in the region of £200,000 before renewing his contract, but Arsenal is attempting to negotiate a lower fee.
Glen Johnson, on the other hand, has advised the young Brazilian to leave Arsenal and join the Premier League rivals Chelsea. He stated to Bettingodds.com:

“He’s a very exciting young player, so I can definitely believe that Chelsea are interested. The closer he gets towards the end of his contract, then there’s a chance they could sign him.”
“Chelsea’s a massive football club and despite the fact that they’ve not been competing as much as they should have been in recent seasons, it still remains a massive attraction.”
“If Gabriel gets to the summer with a year to go on his deal, then I’m sure Chelsea would want a move and I’m sure Martinelli would.”
