Arsenal: Gunners close to agreeing new deal for Bukayo Saka

Arsenal: Gunners close to agreeing new deal for Bukayo Saka - Arsenal News

With various Arsenal players signing new contracts last week such as David Luiz and Cedric Soares, it looks likely that young prospect Bukayo Saka is close to following suit.

According to David Ornstein, who writes for The Athletic on Arsenal matters, the Gunners are putting the finishing touches to a new long-term contract for Saka that will settle his future at the club.

Saka has had a fine breakthrough season for the north London side. He is only 18 but, since the Premier League has returned, he looks to be one of the first names on the team sheet.

He has played 11 times as a left-back, seven times as a left-winger, twice as an attacking midfielder and once as a left midfielder, per Transfermarkt, which also shows how versatile he is and highlights his enormous potential.

Saka has made 33 appearances this season, scoring three times and picking up 10 assists. He has also managed 1.4 tackles a game, per WhoScored, which highlights he has been solid defensively as well.

The academy graduate looks happy to stay and be a part of Mikel Arteta’s plans for the long-term future.

Therefore, the news of him signing a new contract will be a great boost for both the club and its supporters and hopefully Arsenal can tie down a few more of his team-mates for the long-term so that they can improve upon their Premier League position next season.

Gunners fans, how happy are you that Saka is extending his stay at the club? Let us know in the comments below!
