Gabriel Magalhaes pens new long-term contract at Arsenal

Gabriel Magalhaes has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal that is set to keep him at the Emirates Stadium until 2027, according to the club’s website.  

The 24-year-old joined the London club in 2020 from Lille in a deal worth around £27 million. He has since made 83 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners, with nine goals to his name. 

The Brazilian has also made an impressive start to the 2022-23 season, starting 10 games in the English top-flight. 

He has formed a great defensive partnership with William Saliba as Mikel Arteta’s side have conceded only 10 goals in the Premier League this campaign so far. 

Gabriel has also made some high-profile errors this season but his overall performances have been impressive. 

The defender has played around 900 minutes for the North London side this term, averaging an impressive 1.6 tackles, 0.7 interceptions and 3.4 clearances per league game (as per WhoScored). He has also made 2.2 long balls per game and has completed an incredible 90.4 percent of his passes. 

Arsenal are also looking to extend the contracts of Saliba, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, who have all been providing key contributions to the team’s recent successes. 

The Gunners are currently being regarded as a top contender to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title. 

They have won all their matches since the 3-1 setback at Manchester United, which includes victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool

They will be looking to maintain their excellent run when they come up against Southampton this weekend.
