Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has claimed that the Arsenal winger can be the next Cristiano Ronaldo. He has also praised the likes of Bukayo Saka.
It is clear that both the young wingers are excelling at the club under Mikel Arteta. Hence, the Gunners need to solve the issues around the new contract extension.
GABRIEL MARTINELLI’S FUTURE IS LOOKING BRIGHT
Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has said that Arsenal have two of the best young players in the squad. The players are Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka. He has also said that Gabriel Martinelli can reach the levels of Cristiano Ronaldo in his peak years. Hence, he said that Chelsea should try to nullify the threats of the Gunners wingers.
He further said,
“The two players that scare the life out of me at the weekend are Martinelli and Saka, the way that they come inside. You can see he (Martinelli) might have that kind of Ronaldo about him, that body shape. He’s an athlete in the true sense of the word.”
Hence, it looks like Chelsea will have to keep the forward line of Jesus, Martinelli, and Saka quiet to defeat Arsenal in their next Premier League game.
ARSENAL HAVE TO QUICKLY RESOLVE THE CONTRACT ISSUES OF THEIR YOUNG PLAYERS
One of the problems is that the Gunners have to extend their contracts in the next summer transfer window. Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, and William Saliba are all in line for new contracts. They are all asking for a good pay rise after a brilliant start to the season. Hence, it will be important for Arsenal to get their contract extensions over the line.
The report also claims that the Gunners are confident of reaching agreements with all the players. However, rumors of the interest of the big clubs in the players continue to be written. Therefore, Arteta and the owners have to do their best to close the exit rumor mill. All the players have also made it clear that they see their future at Arsenal.
Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League table. They are also at the top of their Europa League table. Hence, they are currently one of the leading contenders to win the trophy in both competitions. Hence, the extension of players like Gabriel Martinelli will be the cherry on top for the fans.
