The 18-year-old German youth international has forced his way into Arsenal's first team this year, and his progress has been rewarded with a new four-and-a-half year contract.

Gnabry, who joined Arsenal from Stuttgart in 2011 when he turned 16, puts all the credit down to Wenger for his progress.

"I am very happy. I know the manager (Arsene Wenger) is fully on the side of young players and that I will be handed a proper chance at this club," he told kicker-Sportmagazin.

"And that's exactly how things went for me. In everyday life Mr Wenger is very much down-to-earth.

"He is very often talking to me and he is pointing me into the right direction.

"It's a fact that it's only me to decide my future progress. It will be all about my future performance and my future conduct."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
