The German has started five Premier League games for the Gunners this campaign, scoring once in the 2-1 win at Swansea City back in September.
The 18 year old is happy with the progress that he has made this season and he has gained a lot by playing alongside his talented team-mates.
Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, he said:
I am very happy with how this season has gone. 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.
It makes you a better person. I have grown up a lot since I came from the youth team, and it is a good experience to be playing, training and learning from all the top players here.

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.
Gnabry, who was signed from Stuttgart for a nominal fee in 2011, has featured on nine occasions in the Premier League, scoring once. The German has shown flashes of real quality in his fleeting appearances so far, along with matches in the Under-21 league.
He has also been very impressive for the Germany youth setup, scoring three goals in his last five internationals for their U-19 team. He is a strong, two-footed speedster, who can play across the attacking midfield positions, but has been mainly deployed on the right wing in the first team.
He has superior pace and prefers to use his box of tricks to cut in. He has quick feet which is a huge advantage, as defenders can never predict where he’ll go. He has been a revelation in his breakthrough year and has certainly impressed fans with his performances and already has shown he has a bright future ahead of him.
The youngster has certainly got the attributes to become an excellent player for the Gunners in the future and in Wenger, he has a manager with a proven track record in creating real gems.
