Arsenal has offered Bukayo Saka a new long-term deal worth £140,000; making him one of the club’s highest-paid players.
Saka’s current contract expires in two years, but Manchester City are interested in the 20 year old. The idea of City convincing Bukayo Saka with champions league football has motivated the London club into offering him a new contract with improved wages.
The club’s highest earners are Thomas Partey and recent acquisition Gabriel Jesus. If Bukayo Saka accepts the new Arsenal deal, he would be in close proximity with the two.
The fact that the Gunners are willing to make a 20-year-old one of their best players demonstrates Saka’s status as one of Europe’s best young talents.
Securing Saka to a contract extension will be a huge boost for the Gunners, who have been worried about the 20-year-long-term old’s future.
