Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka has been sporadically linked with a move to Liverpool this summer, but former Gunners striker Kevin Campbell believes any such deal would be impossible this transfer window.
It was a breakthrough season.
Everyone knew he was talented, but it’d be fair to say just how quickly he’s become one of the Premier League’s top wingers has surprised a few.
As such, inevitably, top clubs have taken note of his performances at Arsenal.
A move for the 20-year-old would appear unlikely to occur this summer though.
Speaking to Highbury Squad, Kevin Campbell revealed his belief that Arsenal “are not going to sell Saka in this window. No chance. No chance.”
As a product of the Arsenal academy, one suspects Saka would favour staying at Arsenal for the rest of his career, but the club’s on-pitch performance will have to improve if Saka is to commit long-term.
Saka is now a Champions League footballer. He would not look out of place playing for either one of Liverpool or Manchester City.
If Arsenal are to persuade Saka to put pen to paper with a new contract, it could be contingent on Champions League qualification next season.
If not, with a year left on his contract as of next summer, Europe’s elite will be sniffing around.
Arsenal know they have a very valuable asset on their hands in Saka, and would certainly rather bring in a big fee for the Englishman than let him run his contract down.
Bukayo Saka won’t be leaving Arsenal just yet. After the club’s near miss on Champions League qualification last term, he has unfinished business in north London.
However, don’t rule out an exit next summer if Arsenal continue to fall just below the Premier League’s UCL places.
