Report: Arsenal aware Manchester City and Real Madrid want Saka

Arsenal are aware that Manchester City and Real Madrid want Bukayo Saka, but 90min reports that the Gunners are confident of agreeing a new contract with the 21-year-old.

Saka remains the jewel in the crown of one of the most exciting Arsenal sides for some time. Remarkably, he has already made more than a century of appearances in the Premier League.

His consistency has been so impressive. The England international has only gone through brief periods where he has struggled. In fact, he has had 55 goal involvements during his first-team career at the Emirates.

Understandably therefore, there have been links with moves away. Reports have previously claimed that Liverpool and City have their eye on Saka.

Arsenal are now in talks with the youngster over a new deal in North London. And it seems that they would not be entirely surprised to see one of his admirers make a last-ditch bid to lure him away.

According to 90min, Arsenal and Saka are aware that he is wanted by Manchester City, as well as Champions League winners Real. But they remain confident that he will commit his future to Mikel Arteta’s men.

Arsenal aware Manchester City want Saka

Manchester City’s interest in Saka highlights how imperative it is that Arsenal continue to move forward. They have made real progress in the last couple of years. And they are now the pace-setters in the Premier League.

They have provided the perfect platform for Saka as he breaks into the side. But he deserves to be playing at the very highest level. He is a ‘special‘ talent.

If Arsenal cannot deliver that at some stage, he may be tempted to consider his options. And obviously, if that does come into his thinking, a move to City or the Spanish capital will be particularly appealing.
