Fabrizio Romano reports that negotiations between Gabriel Martinelli and Arsenal on a new long-term deal are progressing to the final stages. Nothing is done yet, but it’s “getting closer”.

The Brazilian media had previously reported that Martinelli hasn’t signed a contract extension, and that his situation is still the same as before, though the Gunners are looking to extend his deal and up his salary.

The Athletic added that Martinelli’s inclusion with Brazil at the World Cup slowed negotiations somewhat, as Arsenal were keen not to disrupt the player’s focus during the tournament.

But the Gunners reportedly feel that in cases like Martinelli’s, as well as Saka, Saliba, and Ramsdale’s, there is enough goodwill to eventually see negotiations through to a positive conclusion.

The Daily Mail reported this week that Arsenal and Martinelli were close to a deal that would almost triple his salary to around £200,000 per week.

They wrote that discussions are at an advanced stage, and Arsenal hope that an agreement is close.

Martinelli currently has a deal lasting to 2024, with an option to extend to 2026.

The 21-year-old is a consistent starter for Arsenal on the wing, and he may also get some minutes at centre-forward in the coming months, with Gabriel Jesus absent and Arsenal lacking genuine alternatives to Eddie Nketiah.
