PREMIER - Liverpool get transfer advantage from Arsenal mess to get Saka
Transfer interest in Bukayo Saka is growing. The Arsenal winger broke into the first team as an 18-year-old in the 2019/20 season, and has gone from strength to strength since. Last season, Saka played 46 games in all competition for The Gunners, scoring seven goals and providing 10 assists.
Regardless, his performances for Arsenal over the last 18 months have caught the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Italian outlet Calciomercato reporting that Juventus and Atlético Madrid are interested in signing Saka.
It’s also believed that the club are aiming to tie Saka down to a long-term contract, with his existing deal still having a further three years left to run.
Liverpool were rumoured to have an interest before this latest deal was penned, but the agreement looked to have brought an end to the story. However, FSG could take advantage of the current uncertainty at Arsenal to swoop in and poach the winger.
