Gnabry Signs Long Term Contract with Arsenal, Walker Pens Down Six-Year Spurs Contract Extension

Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry has agreed a new long-term contract at the Emirate Stadium.

The Germany youth international signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2012, having impressed the under-18 side.

He quickly moved up to the senior rank during 2012/13 season, making substitute appearances in the Premier and Champions League, becoming the second youngest player- after Jack Wilshere- to appear in both competitions.

“Arsenal is a great football club and I’m so happy to be here and sign a new contract,” said the 18-year-old to the club’s website. “For me, now it’s all about working hard and developing my game.”

The club has not revealed the length of the new deal but has said it is a “long-term contract”.

Gnabry scored his first senior goal in the 2-1 league victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium in September- a week after making his full Premier League debut against Stoke City.

“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,” said Arsene Wenger.

Also Tottenham right-back, Kyle Walker, has signed a new contract committing his future to the club until 2019.

The England international was voted Young Player of the Year by the Professional Football Association (PFA) in 2012.

He has made 112 appearances for Spurs, scoring just twice.
