Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka signed a new long-term contract.
21 year old England The International has scored 14 goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions this season.
Saka told the club’s website: “I’m really happy. It’s been talked about for a long time, but now I’m here. I think this is the right club, the right place to take the next step. It’s a nice club – look where we are.
“What matters to me is achieving my personal ambitions – how hard I push and how much I demand of myself every game, every week. Then as a family, I have the right people around me, and when I come to the training ground, my teammates, the coaching staff.
“I think I have everything I need to be the best player I can be and that’s why I’m happy to stay here and be here in the future because I really believe we can achieve great things.”
Saka released the Gunners jersey in November 2018 and made 178 appearances in red and white jerseys.
He added: “I’ve seen so many changes. I’ve seen this team and club grow, and something that excites everyone around us is that we’re moving in the right direction.
“Time is on our side. You can look at our team and a lot of players are young. We are hungry and most of us haven’t won trophies at Arsenal, so we want to achieve big things. If you pay attention to the way we all talk, we want to win and we want to win here.
“It’s been a long time since this club played Champions League football. I’m really looking forward to Tuesday and Wednesday nights at this stadium, the atmosphere will be special.”
Saka became a goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale when signing a new deal in the last few days.
Boss Mikel Arteta It’s great for the club to have Bukayo extend his contract. Retaining our best young talent is key to our continued progress and Bukayo represents a crucial part of our roster now and in the future.

“Together with our supporters, we look forward to enjoying Bukayo’s continued development with us in the years to come.”
