£66 million English star turned down Liverpool to sign Arsenal contract

The 20-year-old has continued to show why he is one of the most promising youngsters in world football with another stunning campaign for the Gunners.

The England international has scored seven and produced four assists for Mikel Arteta’s top-four chasing side already this term.

But his talents are not going unnoticed elsewhere, and with his contract set to expire in 2024, speculation over his future is beginning to mount.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a huge fan of the attacker and would allegedly love to bring him to Anfield.

Arsenal are ready to offer Saka a new contract in order to try and hold on to their star man.

Now Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has provided a positive update on Saka’s for Gooners everywhere.

He told Rio Ferdinand’s YouTube channel: “They’re also working on Bukayo Saka’s future because this boy is really special.

“It’s always Liverpool rumours, this is what I was asking yesterday and the answer I received was that Bukayo loves Arsenal, he loves the club, he’s a good guy and a genuine guy, and this is why he’s not planning to leave in the summer.

“He’s not focused on a new deal now because he wants to focus on the season, but at the end of the season he will have a meeting with Arsenal and discuss a new deal.”


Saka and his team-mates continue their quest to secure Champions League qualification when they head to Watford on Sunday in the Premier League.
