German forward Serge Gnabry has agreed a new 'long-term contract' with Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger, speaking to the club's website, said "We signed Serge Gnabry because I believe that he will be a great player. He's nearly there now, and competes for a regular place in the team."
Gnabry has made a big impact since making his debut this season, and came on as an early substitute for Mathieu Flamini against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Arsenal won 2-0, with Gnabry winning the penalty that gave them the lead.
Wenger's policy on youth has been one of his most staunchly followed mantras, bringing through the likes of Theirry Henry, Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie from a young age and developing them into world class talents.
Indeed Arsenal, who are currently top of the Premier League, have several youngsters that have been brought through for their current success.
Whilst Gnabry has been on the periphery for the most part, the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere have become key members of the squad, which has not lost a game since the opening day of the season.
Ramsey and Wilshere were part of a five strong group including Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson who all signed five year deals, and all five have played a big part this season.
By the looks of things, Gnabry will not be far behind.
