Liverpool fans react as Arsenal agree new deal for Bukayo Saka

Arsenal have confirmed that Bukayo Saka has agreed a new deal with The Gunners amid doubts over his future as his previous deal expired in 2021 – and Liverpool supporters have reacted on Twitter to the announcement.

Saka, 18, has been in imperious form for Arsenal this season – laying on a whopping 10 assists in 33 league and cup outings. He has also found the back of the net on three occasions, despite playing left-back and left-wing.

His contract was due to expire in the summer of 2021, and with the summer window approaching, clubs began to consider a move. The Daily Mail suggested Premier League champions Liverpool were interested.

Bayern Munich and Manchester United were also said to be considering move for the London-born flyer, but Arsenal have finally tied down their academy product – though the announcement does not confirm how long for.

Liverpool have plenty of options out wide, especially in terms of players breaking into their senior team. Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and others are all on the fringes of Jurgen Klopp’s side – and they wanted Saka to do the same.
