Arsenal not close to agreeing terms with Bukayo Saka

Arsenal are not close to agreeing on a new contract with youngster Bukayo Saka.

The England under-19 international has been excellent for the Gunners under both Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta this season.

But he is wanted by Premier League rivals and may think a new contract is not worthwhile.

The Daily Telegraph suggests the two parties are not close in terms of an agreement.

Saka has played 23 times for the Gunners this season.

He has often filled in due to injuries, but he is starting to become one of the first names on the team sheet under Arteta.

The Gunners will be hoping they can convince him to pledge his future to the club by this summer.

Saka is out of contract at the end of next season, when he could leave to the club of his choosing for modest compensation.
