Reports have indicated that Arsenal and Bukayo Saka have come to an “agreement in principle” to extend his contract at the club. The 21-year-old has been a key player for Mikel Arteta this season, contributing nine goals and eight assists in the Premier League. Manchester City had expressed interest in signing him, but it appears that Saka has chosen to stay with the Gunners. The exact terms of the deal are unknown, but it is expected to be for at least four years and make him the highest earner at the club. Aaron Ramsdale is the next player on the list for a new contract, with Arteta looking to secure his future in north London.
Arsenal have recently secured the long-term futures of one of their key players, with reports confirming that an agreement in principle has been made for an extended contract for attacking midfielder, Bukayo Saka.
The 21-year-old has been vital for Mikel Arteta’s side this season, having contributed nine goals and eight assists in the Premier League so far. With the opportunity arising for Premier League champions Manchester City to poach the player for a fee, the decision to stay is a major show of loyalty from Saka and a stern sign of Arsenal’s ambition to fight for their place in the top half of the table.
Although the exact terms of the deal are yet to be confirmed, it is understood that his contract will be at least four years long and will make him the highest earner at the club. Aaron Ramsdale is the next on the list to receive a new contract, with Arteta looking to secure his future with Arsenal.
This news will be welcomed by many Arsenal fans after the recent upswing of form that has been seen since Arteta replaced Unai Emery. It looks as though some ambitious plans are being put in place at the club, something that should have the supporters dreaming of a brighter future.
