Tony Adams says Arsenal have a teenager in their ranks who is 'going to be a superstar'

Arsenal legend Tony Adams has waxed lyrical about Gunners and England ace Bukayo Saka.

The Arsenal attacker has risen to the top of the English game over the past two years.

Saka, a Hale End graduate, made his breakthrough in 2019-20 and followed it up with a superb 2020-21.

He made 46 appearances for Arsenal last season, registering seven goals and 10 assists.

And despite the Gunners suffering a dismal campaign, Saka was one of their few shining lights throughout.

The 19-year-old followed that up with an impressive Euro 2020 campaign, helping England reach the final.

Although Saka was unfortunate to see his penalty shootout effort saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma, Adams has tipped him to bounce back.

“Hats off to Saka,” Adams told the Official England podcast.

“He’s had an outstanding season for Arsenal and an outstanding tournament for his country, and we just don’t want to lose him now, we don’t want to lose him.

“This won’t affect him, he’s strong, he’s got a good family and a lot of people around him.

“I think that kid is going to be a superstar, he already is a superstar, and he can be very proud of himself, he’s had a fabulous, fabulous tournament.”
