Bukayo Saka: Arsenal have secured future for ‘best young player’, says Edu after signing new deal

RSenal sporting director Edu believes the club have secured the future of one of the best young players in the world by tying Bukayo Saka to a new contract.

Saka has signed a four-year contract which will last until 2027 and makes him Arsenal’s highest-paid player.

The 21-year-old has been in fine form so far this season, scoring 14 goals and providing 11 assists.

The winger helped the Gunners challenge for the Premier League title, although they ultimately lost to Manchester City.

Edu is delighted to have agreed terms with Saka, who would have had a one-year contract this summer, and he believes Arsenal have one of the best young players in the world on their books.

“It’s a very proud moment for all of us at the club, to work hard with Bukayo and to experience his great journey from our academy to our first team.

“Bukayo has now become one of the best young players in the game and we look forward to enjoying this next stage of his career together with us.”
