Gnabry signs new long-term contract with Arsenal

The 18-year-old has been afforded increased first-team chances following injuries to the likes of Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere, with Arsene Wenger hailing his "great" potential.
Serge Gnabry has signed a new "long-term" contract with Arsenal, the club has confirmed.

The 18-year-old, who joined from Stuttgart in 2010, has enjoyed a breakthrough season at the Emirates Stadium this year with five outings.

"We signed Serge Gnabry because I believe that he will be a great player," Wenger told the club's official website. "He's nearly there now, and competes for a regular place in the team in the Premier League.

"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."

Gnabry has represented Germany at Under-16 to Under-19 level.
