Gnabry secures Arsenal future

London, England ( - Arsenal teenager Serge Gnabry has come to terms with the club on a new contract, although details of the deal were not disclosed.

Gnabry made substitute appearances for the Gunners in the Premiership and Champions League last season, but has become a bigger part of the picture at Arsenal this term.

"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," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

"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."

The 18-year-old joined Arsenal in the summer of 2012 and has already featured in five games this season.

Gnabry scored his first senior goal for Arsenal last month against Swansea City, and is delighted to have committed his future to the club.

"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," he said.

"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."
