Leno urges Arsenal to solve Saka contract problem amid Liverpool interest

Bernd Leno hopes Arsenal can agree a contract extension with Bukayo Saka after another brilliant performance from the teenager.

Saka set-up Alexandre Lacazette to score the winner in Thursday's Europa League last-32 win over Olympiakos in Greece.

With 18 months remaining on his contract, Saka has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United.

"He is an outstanding player, hopefully he stays very long at Arsenal," Leno told BT Sport.

"He is very important for us. His cross today was very good. We're happy now we've got the advantage and the away goal."
