The end of a lengthy saga that left fans with moments of panic and fright has arrived. It was announced today that Bukayo Saka has signed a long term contract with Arsenal.
Saka has made his way through the Hale-end academy and taken off this year to stake his claim as a pillar for Arsenal to rebuild around. He has thrived this year in the left back role, center midfield role, left wing role, right wing role, and established himself as a player that can succeed in almost every facet wherever Arteta places him.
Arteta commented saying, “Bukayo is a talented and intelligent young player. He has impressed me with his work ethic and attitude to learn and adapt, and it has paid off in his performances. I am excited to continue working with him to develop him further, and for him to help us achieve our goals.”
His intelligence, workrate, effort, and success has not escaped any Arsenal fans this year who now expect Saka to be in the lineup week in and week out.
Securing this signature was a much-needed sign of success from the club and frees them to turn their attention to Aubameyang, Balogun, and the upcoming transfer window.
No details surrounding the contract have been announced, but it looks like Saka is here to stay!
