Serge Gnabry has declared his desire to “step up a level” at Arsenal after making a string of first-team appearances this season.

The 18-year-old has started five Premier League games for the north London club this season, scoring once in the 2-1 win at Swansea City back in September.

I’m just trying to get to the next level now

Gnabry has made 12 appearances in all competitions this term, and the Germany Under-19 international is determined to continue his progress in the seasons to come.

“I am very happy with how this season has gone,” Gnabry told Arsenal Player. “I am a very young player, so to be alongside all these top players, in a squad with massive potential, has been really good. I have been involved in most of the games so I am very happy.

“[My life] has changed a lot. Obviously you get more attention from fans and get recognised more often.

“Also, as a player you feel confident when you are in and around a team of top players. I’m just trying to get to the next level now.”

He added: “It is very tough to play in the Premier League, you have to be at a constant level – both physically and mentally.

“You have to prepare for the games and be spot on in them, so really that is the biggest challenge for me.”
