Winger Bukayo Saka is happy with the Emirates and could sign a new contract with the North London club, says reporter Pete O’Rourke.
Manchester City and Liverpool are both rumored to be interested in Saka, and while O’Rourke expects suitors if the 21-year-old doesn’t renew his existing contract, he’s confident he’ll remain a part of Mikel Arteta’s side.
What’s the latest news on Saka?
According to 90 Minutes, Arsenal are doing everything they can to tie Saka, who is valued at £ 104m by CIES Football Observatory, to a new long-term contract.
The same outlet says the Premier League team is also looking for Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba to put the new deals on paper. Saka and his two Arsenal teammates will be free agents in 2024, so it’s no surprise to hear the Gunners want them to sign extensions.
The England international is under the watchful eye of City and Liverpool, so you can imagine he’s Arsenal’s priority at the moment. According to the Daily Mail, both Champions League sides are interested in him.
What did O’Rourke say about Saka’s contract situation?
O’Rourke has told GIVEMESPORT that he expects Saka to sign a new contract at the Emirates. However, if the Arsenal star decides not to, the reporter says there will be many teams after his signing.
Speaking with GMS, he said: “If it doesn’t happen, there will be no shortage of buyers for Saka. Many of the best clubs will now look at his contractual situation, but I think the player is happy at Arsenal and Arsenal obviously are very happy with him. So I expect this deal to happen. “
How much does Saka make at Arsenal?
According to the Daily Mail, Saka earns £ 70,000 a week from the Emirates, a figure that is expected to double if he decides to sign that new deal.
