Saka demanding buyout clause included in new Arsenal deal

 


Arsenal are being pushed to include a buyout clause in Bukayo Saka's latest contract offer.

The Daily Mail says formal talks with his representatives due to start at the end of the season.

The 20-year-old England forward effectively has two years left on his deal, as Arsenal have the option of triggering an additional 12 months to the three-year contract he signed in 2020, but the club want to tie him down for considerably longer.

Saka is happy at Arsenal and has a good relationship with manager Mikel Arteta, but he wants to play in the Champions League so may be reluctant to commit himself without an exit strategy.

As with most of the big English clubs, Arsenal do not ordinarily insert release clauses into their players' contracts to ensure they only ever sell from a position of strength, but they may be forced to make an exception for Saka.
