Mikel Arteta believes Bukayo Saka will soon put pen to paper on a new Arsenal contract.
Arteta has no doubt they’ll be keeping the academy graduate at the Emirates Stadium.
Bukayo Saka is edging closer to renewing his contract with Arsenal, according to head coach Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners handed new deals to David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares and, Dani Ceballos on Tuesday, and Saka, whose contract will expire next summer, is set to become the next player to commit his future to the north London club.
The England Under-19 international has a bright future ahead of him and has been linked with a move to Premier League leaders Liverpool.
"I am very positive that everything is going to be done with Bukayo very shortly," he said ahead of Thursday's trip to Southampton. "The communication between the club, agents, and the family has been going on for months and is very fluent.
"The player and family know how much trust I have in him. I think he is just showing that every week and his consistency level is getting better and better."
