Bukayo Saka extends his contract with Arsenal

Arsenal has officially announced the signing of a new long-term contract with Bukayo Saka after the Englishman’s impressive campaign.

The Gunners had engaged in discussions with Saka for several months regarding a contract extension, as his previous deal was set to expire at the end of the following season.

Arsenal maintained a strong belief that the 21-year-old would commit to staying, despite interest from other clubs. They have now confirmed the signing of a new contract that will keep Saka at the club until the summer of 2027.

Following the contract extensions of Gabriel Martinelli and Aaron Ramsdale, Bukayo Saka has now joined them in signing a new contract with Arsenal. The club is currently engaged in ongoing discussions with William Saliba regarding an extension. They strive to secure the long-term futures of their most promising young talents.

‘Happy’ Saka wants to reach his ambitions at Arsenal

“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 teammates, 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.”

This announcement is significant for Arsenal as Bukayo Saka holds a vital role in Mikel Arteta’s talented young squad, showcasing his outstanding performances throughout the season. With 13 goals and 11 assists in the league, Saka has emerged as a key contributor and leader for the team, despite his young age of 21.

Considering the interest from top clubs across Europe, securing Saka’s contract before the summer is a tremendous relief, eliminating any doubts about the future of the English international.
