Arsenal’s young players are arguably the most exciting thing about the club at the moment and Saka has shown he has the quality to build a top flight career for himself.
He and Joe Willock have led the way and Arsenal cannot afford to go through another era where their top talent is prized away.
Getting these youngsters tied down is a good step in that direction and while it’s important that Saka stays hungry and isn’t handed too much too soon, reflecting his status and performance level is a good move.
