Bukayo Saka, a top player for Arsenal, has been advised to consider leaving the club if he wants to add additional titles to his resume soon.
Over the past several years, the Hale End academy product has occasionally carried the fortunes of his childhood club on his back, displaying a level of maturity undoubtedly above his years. Saka’s career has become better and better after Unai Emery gave him his debut in November 2018.
The dynamic player, now a fully-fledged England international at age 21, is trusted in the most important matches for both club and country. He has yet to play a prominent part for a team that has won a trophy, though.
When Arsenal last won a trophy in 2020, Saka was unable to play in either the FA Cup final or semifinal. Saka is definitely eager to end his trophy drought as soon as possible.
David James, a former goalkeeper for Liverpool and England, believes that Saka should leave the Etihad and join Manchester City in the face of interest from Pep Guardiola’s team. The Arsenal player is reportedly seen by many at the top of the City hierarchy as the ideal replacement for the recently-departed Raheem Sterling.
For the last two years in a row, Saka has been named Arsenal’s Player of the Year. Saka finished the previous season as the Gunners’ leading scorer with 12 goals in all competitions.
The absence of Champions League football, though, is soon going to be something Saka really notices. Mikel Arteta, the manager, is surely working really hard to try to lock down the 21-year-old winger to a new contract because his current one ends in the summer of 2024.
Arsenal’s quick start to the new season will undoubtedly help them in discussions, but City, who have won four of the previous five titles and are only one point behind Arsenal in second place, would be a difficult side to turn down if they came knocking.
James told GGRecon the following, which indicates that he does “Although Bukayo Saka plays a significant role in Mikel Arteta’s work at Arsenal, which I find admirable, I can still see why players would want to go.
“Best scenario for Bukayo Then you should stay at Arsenal since they are creating something and haven’t won the league in 18 years if you want to be a part of a revolution in a way.
If you can persuade Arsenal to fight for the Premier League championship, you’ll be a part of a revolution, but if you want trophies right away, Manchester City is nearly a given.
He would be a great addition to Manchester City, in my opinion. He need to relocate to Manchester City, in my opinion, as I have plenty of pals who play for Arsenal.
Saka’s departure from Arsenal isn’t imminent, according to comments made by Arteta last month. The Gunners manager said: “I am quite optimistic that us as a club, Bukayo and his family and agency are all aligned.” The next step is to write that down on a piece of paper.
