Reports – Liverpool monitoring situation of Arsenal forward

The reds are reportedly monitoring Bukayo Saka’s Arsenal situation at the Emirates Stadium and could make a move if the Gunners fail to secure Champions League football this season.

The England international signed a contract extension in 2020, so his current deal with Arsenal runs until July 2024.

As per ESPN’s Mark Ogden, Liverpool and Manchester City will be willing to test Arsenal’s resolve with a bid for Saka this summer.

The Gunners are still in contention to finish in the Premier League top four in other to secure a spot in champions league football. However, they did not sign attacking reinforcements over the winter transfer window, and that decision might eventually cost them.

It would be a surprise if they make the top four considering the quality of teams around them in the league table.

Liverpool Fc came quite close to signing Saka on a ‘free’ transfer before he signed a new deal at Arsenal in 2020. If Arsenal fails to secure Champions League football I fully expect LFC to move for him. #LFC

If the Gunners coincidentally missed out on the top four, Arsenal may struggle to keep some of their best players, and Saka is certainly one of them.

Arsenal see Saka as one of their future stars, as per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. It remains to be seen if they will entertain any bids for him come the summer.

Romano revealed in the Here We Go Podcast last year:

“I want to talk about Bukayo Saka, because some clubs are starting to approach Bukayo Saka, to watch Saka as one of the best players in his position for the future.

“Some clubs, they are not making bids or anything, but they are asking about the contract and everything. Arsenal considers this player untouchable. He is a player for the present and the future, and Arsenal are planning on building on Saka for the future.”

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka will find Liverpool hard to turn down

Although Arsenal have a young and talented squad, they are nowhere close to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Gunners need to add more experience and depth to their squad to return to the top four. But will Saka stick around for the process?
