Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Bukayo Saka should be playing as a winger rather than a left-back.
Saka has been used mostly as a defender this season and has performed admirably in the position despite his limited experience.
Asked if Saka could become the next Ashley Cole, Wright said: “For me he’s a better winger.
“It’s just because of his ability and how good he is that he can play that position.
“Ashley turned out to be one of the best full-backs in the world but this guy is better further forward.”
Saka has yet to sign a extension on his current which expires in 2021.
And Wright thinks the Englishman should hold out for the best deal.
“He’s right him and his representatives to hold out as best they can because he’s the future of the club,” added Wright.
“They cannot afford to let a player like this leave, When you look at what Callum Hudson-Odoi has done and he’s a year younger.
“The contract he signed, Saka’s representatives will be saying: ‘Why should I sign for any less?’
“I believe he will sign but I do think him and his reps are doing the right thing by dragging it out to get the best deal they can. Arsenal is the right place for him at the moment.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
