EPL: Arsenal Extends Saka’s Contract


Arsenal have extended Bukayo Saka’s contract until 2024 amid their attempts to secure his long-term future at the club.

The 21-year-old has continued to be a key part of Mikel Arteta’s side, who currently sit top of the Premier League.

Saka is one of a number of young stars at the club who continue to thrive, with Arsenal keen to keep him for the future.

As a result, ESPN are reporting that they have triggered their option to extend his contract by another year.

He was entering the final few months of his deal, but will now remain at the Emirates Stadium until 2024.

Reports back in October revealed the winger has agreed to sign a new five-year deal at the club, in which he’ll earn £200,000-a-week.

With Saka being one of the Premier League’s top talents, there has been heavy interest from other clubs in Europe.

He is said to be a ‘dream’ signing for Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, with Liverpool and Man City also linked with a move.

William Saliba’s deal has also been extended by a further year, with the Frenchman being yet another key player for Arsenal.

Like Saka, he is one for the future at the Gunners, who have been highly impressive this season.

Their 4-2 win against Brighton on New Year’s Eve has taken them seven points clear at the top of the table.

Arteta’s side are searching for their first title since 2004, with reigning champions Manchester City slacking behind in second.
