“He’s a perfect fit” – Watch premier league star Bukayo Saka sent a message to complete Liverpool transfer as Mikel Arteta faces Arsenal contract dilemma
a star for Arsenal In two years, Bukayo Saka’s contract with the Gunners expires, and Mikel Arteta has an issue that needs to be resolved.
Jurgen Klopp’s team has been dubbed “ideal” for Bukayo Saka, and Liverpool have been urged to plan a move for the Arsenal winger.
The 20-year-future old’s in north London has been questioned as a result of the ongoing contract crisis at the Emirates Stadium.
The Hale End graduate played 38 times in the Premier League for Mikel Arteta’s team last year, directly assisting 18 goals.
Even though rival Tottenham Hotspur beat Arsenal to Champions League qualification, Saka still attracted interest from numerous top-flight clubs in Europe despite his stellar performances.
Additionally, with discussions about a new contract reportedly starting soon, the Gunners are under increasing pressure to put a release clause in it as his current term with the club is slated to expire in 2024.
Saka, who CIES Football Observatory estimates to be worth approximately £100 million, has been crucial to much of Arsenal’s recent success, leading the team into a new era.
However, former Premier League defender Glen Johnson has backed a proposal that would see Saka sign a contract at Anfield despite his success in north London. The Games Cabin, to whom I spoke,
Johnson said: “I’d like to see Bukayo Saka go to Liverpool. He’d suit Liverpool perfectly.
“But he’s playing well for Arsenal, and he clearly enjoys being there. He’s obviously a good lad, and you can see that from the way he interacts with other players.”
“He’s still super young so maybe a few more years at Arsenal would work too. As long as he continues to stamp his authority there, then the big teams are still going to want to sign him.”
While some sources have questioned Saka’s future at his old team, the MailOnline reported in May that the winger is content at Arsenal.
After failing to make the Champions League, the MailOnline did speculate that the England international “may be reluctant to commit himself without an escape strategy.”
