Bukayo Saka signs new long-term Arsenal contract2 min read
Arsenal have announced that Bukayo Saka has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
The Gunners have been working to tie the winger down to a new deal and now, Arsenal have confirmed that Saka has now finally put pen to paper on the new contract.
Saka has enjoyed another fine season at the Emirates Stadium, starring in their ultimately unsuccessful Premier League title charge.
He is one of only two players – the other being Mohamed Salah – to have registered double figures of goals and assists in the top flight this term, scoring 13 times and setting up others on 11 occasions.
Arsenal are continuing to try and secure the futures of many of their key players. Aaron Ramsdale has signed a new deal and talks are ongoing with William Saliba.
However, Arsenal are ready to allow Granit Xhaka to leave this summer after he backed out of contract talks, with a move to Bayer Leverkusen nearing completion.
The Swiss midfielder has admitted a decision on his future will be announced this week.
“You will know the latest next week, for sure,” he said to the Evening Standard after Arsenal’s 1-0 loss at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
“I think they [the fans] deserve that and I do myself as well. We have one more week of this Premier League season, the first thing is I want to enjoy and, for sure, you guys will know next week what happens with my future.”
