LIVERPOOL and Manchester City are reportedly watching Arsenal star Bukayo Saka and could launch a bid should the Gunners fail to make the top four.
The 20-year-old has gone from strength to strength this season, putting his England Euro 2020 heartbreak behind him. And his form, which has seen him score more goals than he did last season and match his assists tally, has attracted interest from a host of top clubs.
According to ESPN, defending Premier League champions Man City are interested in Saka, as are Liverpool. Both clubs could look to make a move should Arsenal fail in their bid to secure top four football.
The Gunners would, however, have to beat the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and West Ham to fourth spot. United are currently sat fourth after beating rivals West Ham 1-0 before the late January break. Arsenal are two points off the Red devils with a game in hand.
Saka’s contract is up in the summer of 2023 but Arsenal ARE looking to tie him down to a new deal, as well as manager Mikel Arteta.
Giving the winger a new contract is said to be one of Arsenal’s top priorities come the end of the season.
As well as handing out new contracts, Arsenal could be set to spend BIG again.
In fact, they’re planning the biggest spending spree in their history – with up to £180million budgeted for summer signings.
