Report: Arsenal eager for quick deal with Saka – Arseblog News
Arsenal keen to tie Bukayo Saka to new contract ‘as soon as possible’, say Athleticism David Orstein.
The 20-year-old’s current deal – signed in July 2020 – runs until 2024, but with the player’s value and profile skyrocketing in the past 12 months, Mikel Arteta and Edu are acutely aware of the need to ward off the interest of other big names. clubs with financial terms that reflect his importance to the team.
The Gunners have worked hard to reduce the wage bill over the past year and it is expected that we will be able to offer competitive terms. Whether the club can match the player’s ambitions is quite another thing.
Securing Champions League football this season would certainly underscore that things are moving in the right direction under Mikel Arteta and for any chance of a quick deal we believe qualification will be key.
Saka has been signed to Arsenal since he was seven years old and that long-standing relationship should work in our favor as well.
Asked last month about contract talks with Saka, Arteta said: “Obviously our desire is to keep Bukayo as long as possible because we are really happy, he is part of our club, he is our DNA, he is growing, he matures, his importance in the team is indisputable and we want to keep our best talents at the club, that’s for sure.
