Bukayo Saka signed a new long-term contract agreement and is ready for more success at Arsenal.
With 13 goals and 11 assists in 37 Premier League games this season, Saka, 21, has been crucial to the Gunners’ bid for the league crown.
He thinks greater awards will come his way because he and his boyhood team have previously won the FA Cup and Community Shield.
I’m simply incredibly delighted, Saka remarked. It’s been a long and there has been a lot of talking, but I’m finally here. I believe that joining this group and moving further here is the appropriate decision.
It’s a gorgeous club. For me, it’s about reaching my individual goals – how hard I work and how much I expect of myself each game, week in and week out. I also think I have everything I need to develop into the best player I can be in terms of my family, my teammates, and the coaching staff when I’m on the practice field. I’m glad to be here now and in the future because I believe that we can accomplish great things.
Saka, a player for England, has made 178 appearances since making his North Londoners debut in November 2018.
And when the winger pledged his future to the team, manager Mikel Arteta was overjoyed. It’s fantastic for the club that Bukayo has extended his contract, he remarked. The key to our continuous development is keeping our best young talents, and Bukayo is such a crucial member of our squad both now and in the future. Bukayo is not only a tremendous talent, but also a unique person.
We all adore him, and he is a credit to both himself and his family for the sacrifices they have all made to reach this point in time.
After goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, Saka is the second member of the first team to recently extend his contract at the Emirates.
From Hale End to first team. Arsenal through and through.
It’s time for the next chapter.

The Gunners completed their season at home against Wolves on Sunday after seeing their title hopes end with a loss at Nottingham Forest last Saturday.
No matter the outcome, Arteta’s team will come in behind Treble-chasing Manchester City.
