Speaking to reporters, Arteta says contract talks are underway.
“The club is doing what it has to do and holding conversations. Hopefully we’ll get a result,” the Spaniard explained.
According to the Daily Mail, both Liverpool and Manchester United have been linked with the player alongside German giants Bayern Munich.
Saka’s versatility and calmness has been a key factor behind his sudden progress.
Predominantly a winger, the youngster has featured at left-back of late in place of summer signing Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac who have struggled with injuries.
Saka broke into Arsenal’s first-team squad last season under Unai Emery. But, under Arteta, he is getting more opportunities and appears to be grabbing them with both hands.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
