Bukayo Saka, the talented young winger of Arsenal, has signed a new four-year contract with the Gunners. The new deal will see Saka stay at the Emirates Stadium until 2027 and earn a weekly salary of £300,000. This is a significant pay rise from his previous contract, which was set to expire in 2024.
Saka has been one of Arsenal best performers this season, with 14 goals and 11 assists in 47 appearances. He has become a regular starter under manager Mikel Arteta, playing in a variety of positions including left-back, left-wing, and right-wing. Saka’s versatility, skill, and work ethic have made him a fan favorite and a key player for the Gunners.
The 21-year-old winger was born in England but has Nigerian heritage and has represented England at international level. Saka’s decision to commit his future to Arsenal is a huge boost for the club, as they seek to build a team capable of challenging for major trophies in the coming years.
Saka is part of a group of young players that Arsenal has been working to tie down to long-term contracts this season. Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli and defender Gabriel Magalhaes have already signed new deals, and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale recently announced his extension. Talks are ongoing with French defender William Saliba over a new contract.
Saka’s previous contract had been extended by Arsenal for a further 12 months to 2024,but the club was keen to secure his future beyond that. The young winger has shown tremendous potential and has already established himself as an important player for Arsenal. His ability to create and score goals, as well as his work rate and versatility, make him a valuable asset for the team.
In a statement, Saka expressed his delight at signing a new contract with Arsenal. He said, “I’m delighted to have signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal. The club has been a big part of my life for a long time, and I want to repay the faith they have shown in me. I’m excited about the future and can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta also spoke about Saka’s new contract, saying, “Bukayo is a special talent and a fantastic young player. He has already made a big impact at the club, and we believe he has the potential to become one of the best players in the world. We’re thrilled that he has committed his future to Arsenal and look forward to working with him to achieve our goals.”
Saka’s new contract is a clear indication of Arsenal’s commitment to building a young, talented squad capable of challenging for major honours in the future. With Saka, Martinelli, Magalhaes, and other promising young players in the team, Arsenal fans can be optimistic about what the future holds for their club.
