The England international’s current deal expires in 2024 and the Gunners have been in negotiations with the player since the beginning of this year.
However, Saka has yet to put pen to paper on an extension, raising concerns about his future at the club. Asked whether they are worried about the situation, fans on Twitter had differing views on the matter:
Secure UCL and no worries

Sign him up!

Arsenal are on the up. If they make some good signings he will definitely stay.

I would love for him to stay since he’s homegrown and hale end but if we don’t win anything this year or finish in top 4 we may need the sale money

If he doesn’t sign that means he wants to leave and we must sell.. Simple as that!

Saka is Arsenal through and through so it’s hard to see him leaving the Emirates. With the London club looking dead certs for a top-four finish, barring a severe drop-off in form, you would think that would be enough to satisfy his ambitions.
Of course, the bigger issue could be salary demands but you would hope that Arsenal accepts Saka deserves to be rewarded financially for being one of their best players.
