Arsenal hope to announce Saka deal this month


Arsenal are hoping to announce Bukayo Saka's new contract before the end of the Premier League season, according to PA.

The England forward has been in talks with the club since last year but is committed to signing a new deal, which could now be sewn up before the summer break.

Saka, 21, has played a pivotal role in the Gunners' title challenge this season and is the only Premier League player to reach double figures for goals and assists.

Talks with Arsenal over fresh terms have stretched back to last summer, with Saka saying in August he "shared confidence" with Arteta that he would extend his deal at the Emirates Stadium.

PA understands an agreement has all-but been reached for a new contract for the academy graduate, whose last deal was signed in the summer of 2020 and expires next year
