In talks: Fabrizio Romano drops huge Arsenal update that supporters will love

Arsenal may have finally made a breakthrough in negotiations with Bukayo Saka about his contract.

What’s the word?

Speaking at CaughtOffside, Fabrizio Romano had the following to say on a new deal:

“The talks between Arsenal and Bukayo Saka’s camp have been going on since February. Arsenal sees Saka as a key player and considers his contract extension to be as important as a new signing this summer.

The top English teams have been keeping an eye on the situation for some time, but the good news for Gunners supporters is that Saka loves the club and there is a negotiation in progress.

Supporters will be delighted

The youngster has been the talk of North London since bursting onto the scene in 2019 when Mikel Arteta nurtured him into the first team player.

He has repaid the Spaniard back tenfold and looks to further thank him with his signature on a long-term contract.

Saka scored an outstanding 11 goals and seven assists while featuring in all 38 of the Gunners’ Premier League games, fast emerging as one of their most valuable attacking assets.

He is a solid performer, as evidenced by his average SofaScore rating of 7.04, but his speed and trickery make him somewhat of a maverick when he switches to his preferred left foot from the right flank.

The England international, who is only 20 years old, has the whole world at his feet and is capable of scoring both screamers and sophisticated close-range goals.

His manager was eager to defend him and sing his praises even after a disappointing performance at Euro 2020: “I think it was great for his career because the football world proved how much they like him and how much they respect him.”

The next step is to give him that space, he continued. What he’s doing is phenomenal and he needs that room.

To secure him at the Emirates for the foreseeable future is a huge statement of intent and a sign that Saka has bought into the project that Arteta is building. Supporters should be delighted to see that their star boy is set to stick around.
