Arsenal hoping Xhaka, Saliba and Ramsdale will sign new contracts
Arsenal are reportedly hoping that Granit Xhaka, William Saliba and Aaron Ramsdale will follow Bukayo Saka in signing new contracts soon.
The Lowdown: Saka deal agreed
It was first reported by The Daily Mail on Thursday evening that Saka is close to signing a new contract at the Emirates Stadium worth £200,000-per-week.
The winger has made it clear after talks that he would like to stay, with an agreement in principle already in place.
The Latest: Three more to follow?
Writing for 90min, transfer expert Graeme Bailey has shared that Arsenal are hoping to follow up a deal for Saka with new contracts for Xhaka, Saliba and Ramsdale.
They have already secured the signatures of Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah this season, and now more first-team players could be following suit soon.
The Verdict: Exciting future
To secure so many first-team players on new deals further shows the exciting team that Mikel Arteta is building.
They have the youngest average age in the Premier League, and sit top of the table, so keeping the squad together over the next few years will be vital.
On £120,000, £60,000 and £40,000-per-week respectively, Xhaka, Ramsdale and Saliba can expect an increase in wages with their new contracts, which would all be well-deserved considering that they have all been key players this season.
Nonetheless, supporters will be hoping that all of these new deals can be wrapped up sooner rather than later.
