Arsenal's Saka Signs Long-Term Deal

Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka has signed a new long-term contract with the club, committing his future to the Gunners until 2027. The 21-year-old has been in impressive form this season, scoring 14 goals and providing 11 assists in all competitions. He has already made 178 appearances for Arsenal since his debut in 2018 and has featured in all of their Premier League games over the past two campaigns.

Speaking about his new deal, Saka said: “I’m just really happy. There’s been a lot of talking and it’s been a while, but I’m here now. I think this is the right club, the right place to make the next step. It’s a beautiful club – look where we are. For me, it’s about achieving my personal ambitions – how much I push myself and demand from myself each game, week in, week out. Then I have all the right people around me in terms of family, and when I come to the training ground, my team-mates, the coaching staff. I think I have everything I need to become the best player I can be, and that’s why I’m happy to stay here and be here for the future, because I really believe that we can achieve big things.”

Saka’s previous deal was due to expire in 2024, but Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was delighted to secure his long-term future at the club: “It’s great for the club that Bukayo has extended his contract. Retaining our best young talents is key to our continued progress and Bukayo represents such an important part of our squad now and for the future. As well as being a fantastic talent, Bukayo is a special person – he’s loved by us all.”

The Gunners will be looking to finish their Premier League campaign on a high when they host Wolves on Sunday, having missed out on the title to Manchester City. Next season, Arsenal will be back in the Champions League after a six-year absence. Saka is confident that the club are heading in the right direction: “I have seen a lot of change. I’ve seen this team and the club grow, and one thing that everyone around us can be excited about is that we are going in the right direction. Time is on our side. You can look at our team and a lot of the players are young. We’re hungry, and a lot of us haven’t won trophies at Arsenal so we want to achieve big things. If you watch the way we all speak, we want to win and we want to win here.”
