Arsenal secures Gabriel Magalhaes contract until 2027

Defender Gabriel Magalhaes has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal. The 24-year-old centre-back agreed a rumored extension until 2027.

The Brazilian joined from Lille in 2020 and has made 81 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions scoring nine goals.

His slick performance and central role in Arsenal’s back line this season has also made management want to secure his signature for the long term.

“Gabi (Gabriel) has shown tremendous quality since he joined us. He is a young player with a great work ethic and his consistent and strong performances have been very important for us over the last two seasons,” said coach Mikel Arteta.

“Working with Gabi every day is a pleasure, he has formed a strong relationship with everyone at the club and we are very pleased he has committed to us on a long-term contract.”

Gabriel was happy with the extension of his contract. He also wants to be with Arsenal for a long time.

“I want to win games for Arsenal, I want to win trophies with Arsenal and stay here for a long time because this is my home.”

Arsenal have also recently been aggressively tying up their young players for longer. Apart from Gabriel, Bukayo Saka will also soon agree to a new deal. Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba have also been linked with new contract extensions. (AFP/Dhk/OL-09)
