Saka was nominated alongside Gabriel Martinelli, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira.

The 18-year-old has been impressive for Arsenal in January despite playing as an emergency left-back.

He scored Arsenal’s first goal and provided the assist in the 2-1 win against Bournemouth, in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

He had another assist in the 1-1 home draw against Sheffield United, setting up Martinelli to tap in.

Also, he was nominated for Arsenal’s December Player of the Month award, losing out to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The winner of this month’s award will be voted for by fans of the club.

    English interest in Saka continues to rise on a daily basis, with his scintillating performances. It will be a shame if we finally lose this guy to England. This guy is the next Celestine Babayaro. If he is so good at just 18 yrs of age, imagine how good he will be at his prime! NFF, WAKE UP!
