Arsenal struggling to reach agreement with Bukayo Saka over new deal

Arsenal are yet to tie Bukayo Saka to a new deal at The Emirates.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign in an unfamiliar left-back position at the Emirates, registering three goals and nine assists across all competitions.

Saka has attracted interest from Manchester United and Liverpool with Arsenal’s Premier League rivals for the 18-year-old if he does not extend his stay.

The England Under-19 international’s current £3,000-per-week deal is set to expire in the summer of 2021.

According to 90 min, Arsenal are prepared to offer him a five-year deal and increase his wages significantly following his breakthrough season at the Emirates.

Saka has made an impressive 10 assists and scored three goals in 29 appearances across all competitions this term.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are reportedly resigned to losing club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for as little as £30m this summer.

The forward has been linked with Manchester United and Barcelona.
