"He'd Suit Liverpool Perfectly" - Arsenal Star Tipped To Join Klopp's Side

"He'd Suit Liverpool Perfectly" - Arsenal Star Tipped To Join Klopp's Side

Former Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson believes the club should make a move for Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka.

The England international is one of Mikel Arteta’s key players, scoring 12 goals in 46 matches last campaign.

Despite his high-profile miss in the EURO 2021 final penalty shootout, he has been a fixture for his country, being capped 18 times since his debut in 2020.

If Arsenal fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, many believe Saka’s head will be turned by a club in the elite bracket.

Liverpool and Manchester City have been linked in previous years, and Johnson, who played for the Reds from 2009 to 2015, thinks a transfer to Anfield could be the best decision he could make.

“I’d like to see Bukayo Saka go to Liverpool. He’d suit Liverpool perfectly,” he told The Games Cabin.

“But he’s playing well for Arsenal, and he clearly enjoys being there. He’s obviously a good lad, and you can see that from the way he interacts with other players.


“He’s still super young so maybe a few more years at Arsenal would work too."

"As long as he continues to stamp his authority there, then the big teams are still going to want to sign him.”

Next summer, Saka will have one year left on his deal at The Emirates and if he doesn't renew, Arsenal may be keen to sell instead of losing him for nothing.

And with Roberto Firmino likely to leave Liverpool next season too, the England international may be the perfect versatile option for Jurgen Klopp to invest in.

When speaking about him before, Klopp labelled him ‘young and exciting’:

“You can see Arsenal brought a few new faces in; some found, obviously, their striking feet back, And apart from that, young and exciting players as well with [Emile] Smith Rowe and [Bukayo] Saka and all these kinds of things.”

Whether the Reds move for him it remains to be seen, but it would be an exciting transfer for fans, player and club.
