Arsenal are reportedly prepared to quadruple Bukayo Saka’s wages in order to convince the attacker to sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.
The 20-year-old has led from the front in the Gunners’ quest for Champions League football and scored his ninth Premier League goal of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Aston Villa.
Saka is under contract in North London until the summer of 2024, but the Gunners have supposedly begun initial talks over an extension for the England international.
According to The Sun, Arsenal are willing to offer Saka a £125k-a-week contract to stay with his boyhood club amid reported interest from Liverpool and Manchester City.
The report adds that Saka is currently earning £30k a week at the Emirates, and Mikel Arteta is desperate to secure the youngster’s long-term future at any cost as talks prepare to take place at the end of the season.
Saka already has one FA Cup winners’ medal to his name since coming through the Arsenal academy and boasts 21 goals and 27 assists from 121 appearances for the Gunners’ first team.
