 Arsenal tried to tie Saka down with a super contract.

Arsenal let Pierre Emerick Aubameyang come to Barca on the last day of the winter transfer window. The move will save the Gunners around £25m according to experts’ calculations.

According to Four Four Two, Arsenal will use that money to sign a super contract with young talent Bukayo Saka, who has been eyeed by Liverpool and Man City in recent times.

Currently, the contract of Saka and the host club has two and a half years left, but the Arsenal board wants to take the lead in this deal. Of course, a lucrative contract does not mean that the players will commit to a long-term commitment to the team. People have seen the departure of Luis Suarez or Philippe Coutinho at Liverpool shortly after the extension.

pundit Ian McGarry on a New Year’s Day Transfer Podcast said: “Liverpool will provide the opportunity and platform for him to play and compete at the highest level. That’s for sure. which I know he and his agent will be interested in.”

In the opinion of experts, at the time of 2024, Saka can be the successor to Mohamed Salah at Anfield, although this player does not have a natural speed as good as the Egyptian striker.
