Bukayo Saka is expected to pen a new Arsenal deal according to a report.

The talented teenager has excelled in his breakthrough season at the Emirates.

Originally a winger, Saka has proven his versatility having filled in at full-back for large parts of the season.

Saka, who was flourishing prior to the coronavirus pandemic, is soon to enter the final year of his existing £5,000-a-week deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Saka set for new Arsenal deal

The Athletic claim the 18 year-old is set to significantly improve on his current contract with the Gunners set to tie him down for the long-term.

Mikel Arteta has played Saka in all but one of his 16 matches in charge, originally due to the injury absence of Kieran Tierney.

After a stand-off between the board and players, Arsenal are now set to agree a plan for players to take a 12.5 per cent pay cut due to lost revenue from the disruption caused by the pandemic.
