'From what I'm told': Fabrizio Romano has some good news for Arsenal fans
Arsenal star Bukayo Saka delivered a masterclass on his first World Cup appearance for England.
The Gunners ace was outstanding against Iran on Monday, scoring two brilliant goals in the 6-2 win.
Alongside Jude Bellingham, Saka was one of the two star men for Gareth Southgate’s side.
As good as it was to see the Arsenal star shine on the biggest stage, it may have just made life more difficult for Edu.
With the Gunners looking to tie Saka down to a new deal, World Cup success could mean more suitors joining the race.
He currently has a little under two years remaining on his current deal.
However, Fabrizio Romano has sought to reassure Arsenal fans that a superb campaign in Qatar won’t affect his club situation.
He wrote on CaughtOffside today: “What a performance from Bukayo Saka as England beat Iran yesterday!
“Both goals were of the highest quality, but could a strong World Cup affect his situation at Arsenal?
“From what I’m told – no.
“He was already considered one of their most important players and talks are ongoing over a new deal.”

This is just what Arsenal fans would’ve wanted to hear.
Saka is already a superstar at the Emirates Stadium, and the way he’s going, he’s becoming a superstar for England.
World Cup success is always a double-edged sword, particularly when the player in question hasn’t got too long left on his contract.
But by the sounds of it, Arsenal remain in a strong position to tie Saka down to a new contract.
Indeed, the Gunners’ strong start to the Premier League campaign and clear progress have come at the perfect time.
