Emery Names The Teenager Who Is Going To Go On To “Great” Things At Arsenal

Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery has tipped Bukayo Saka to be a success in the game following his excellent start to his professional career with the Gunners.

The teenager was handed his senior debut by Emery in a Europa League game against Vorskla in November 2018 but the Spaniard said he knew straight away that the player had a lot of potential:

“Bukayo [Saka] played eight minutes and never touched the ball but that was a first step for a 17-year-old who’s going to be great.”

Saka has gone on to make 30 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season, with the winger even being employed as a fullback on a number of occasions.

There is, though, some concern about his long-term future at the Emirates, with an agreement yet to be reached over a new contract.

Saka’s current deal expires at the end of next season, with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United, Valencia, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich all keeping an eye on his situation.

The Gunners are believed to be confident that the 18-year-old will sign on a dotted line soon, but the longer negotiations go on for, the greater concern there will be that he could leave next year.
