'Untouchable': Romano says there's one player Arsenal simply won't sell, even though clubs want him
Fabrizio Romano has said on the Here We Go podcast that Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka will not be sold under any circumstances.
Saka has emerged as the jewel in the crown at the Emirates Stadium over the past year.
He scooped their Player of the Season award last term and is widely regarded as one of the best prospects in English football.
Saka’s performances for Arsenal have apparently not gone unnoticed by potential buyers.
But Arsenal are standing firm in their desire to keep hold of the teenaged sensation.
“Some clubs are starting to approach Bukayo Saka, Arsenal consider him untouchable. They are planning to build on players like Saka also for the next years,” Romano said.
Arsenal do seem intent on keeping their best, young players around – after batting aside interest from Aston Villa in Emile Smith Rowe.
The Gunners’ stance certainly seems sensible, as selling Saka at such an early stage of his career would sent out completely the wrong message.
If they are to keep the academy graduate though, it will be imperative that they start to improve.
Saka has the ability to play at the very top level, and Arsenal will need to match his own ambitions in future years, otherwise keeping hold of him could prove to be a challenge, especially with interest mounting.
