Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is ready to offer Serge Gnabry a new contract following his return to form with Germany at the Rio Olympics.
Gnabry has been the star of the German men’s side which has reached Saturday’s final against hosts Brazil, scoring six goals in five matches.
The 21-year-old broke into the Arsenal first team three years ago and made an instant impact, scoring on only his second Premier League appearance against Swansea, before numerous injuries stunted his progress.
After recovering from knee ligament damage Gnabry spent last season on loan at West Brom where he failed to make an impression but Wenger insists he sees the forward’s long-term future in north London.
‘I want to keep Serge Gnabry and extend his contract,’ Wenger said at his press conference on Thursday.
‘I think we stood by him. He went to West Brom, didn’t play, we had to rebuild his confidence. I allowed him to go to the Olympics to help Germany.
‘I think he’s here now for a long time.’
