This comes after the 21-year-old finished eighth in the Trophee Kopa award, losing to Barcelona’s Gavi.

Saka has twice been named Arsenal’s player of the year and was recently named England’s male player of the year.

Since missing his spot kick at the Euros last year, he has developed a strong mentality.

“He deserves more recognition, not just in the Premier League but on an international level. He’s shot to fame in the past few years and there’s definitely a case to say that eighth is not a suitable ranking for the talent he has.”

“He won’t worry too much about this. The fact that he’s in the top ten is a great credit to him, but he’ll be focused on what he’s doing for Arsenal.”
