Arsenal chiefs seek to secure Saka, Saliba to new deals

Arsenal are set to switch their focus to tying down Bukayo Saka and William Saliba to new contracts.

The club have been successful in getting Gabriel Martinelli to sign a new contract.

The Brazilian has agreed terms on a new four and a half year deal, which includes a club option of another year.

Manager Mikel Arteta admitted that Saka and Saliba are next.

“Part of the plan obviously is to extend the contracts of our biggest talents at the club and commit them to the future," Arteta told reporters during a news conference.

“We are trying to do that, we have started with Gabi and that is good news, the others will be done when we can and we have to agree on that.

“I see everyone really happy and really willing to continue at the club but we have to meet everyone's expectations and timing is key on that."
