GABRIEL MARTINELLI insists he “just needs to get a pen” to sign a new Arsenal contract – despite interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea.
The Brazil winger is in talks over taking his current deal beyond 2024 and is “very happy” with the Premier League leaders.
And they are confident both will agree huge new long-term contracts.
Arsenal already have the option to extend Martinelli’s deal for two more years until 2026.
And he said: âI am very happy at Arsenal. Iâve said it many times.
âThis is my club. I love to be here, I love the city, I love the club.
I love everything about Arsenal so I want to stay. I just need to get a pen.”
The Gunners are likely to be much changed for Thursday night’s Europa League group finale at home to Zurich.
But they will still expect to confirm top place with victory over the bottom-placed Swiss side.
Martinelli is keen to play as much as possible in all competitions – particularly as he, like his Arsenal team-mates is anxious to seal a place at Qatar.
He said: âWe talk about it a lot. Of course all of us want to be there in the squad and to play at the World Cup.
“All we can do is work hard here at Arsenal and try our best to be on the list.”
