Ex-Arsenal star Walcott warns Saka about joining Man City

Former Arsenal star Theo Walcott has warned Bukayo Saka will not get the playing time he wants at Manchester City.

Premier League champions City and Liverpool are being linked with Saka, who has two years remaining on his contract.

"He needs to understand that the playing opportunities will be limited at Manchester City," Walcott told talkSPORT.

"He will, of course, be more likely to win things, but it is not saying Arsenal won't win things.

"There is obviously a transitional stage at Arsenal, that Mikel is part of, and Saka is massively part of it as well

"The younger crop of players at Arsenal coming through, I feel as though the club need to keep hold of him, simple as that.

"I think they are in that phase, they are slowly starting to get there. They would have taken fifth at the start of the season, given how it went."
