“He Will Definitely Want To Get Out…” Pundit Says Arsenal Ace Could Jump Ship To Liverpool, City Or Chelsea Next Year

“He Will Definitely Want To Get Out…” Pundit Says Arsenal Ace Could Jump Ship To Liverpool, City Or Chelsea Next Year

Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka may delay signing a new contract until he knows whether the Gunners will finish in the top four, according to Paddy Kenny.

The former Sheffield United goalkeeper believes that Saka would consider joining the likes of Liverpool if his current club don’t qualify for the Champions League:

“I just think he isn’t in a major rush to sign. If Arsenal didn’t get into the Champions League this season I wouldn’t be surprised if he is looking for a move. He would be looking for a move to a regular Champions League team like Liverpool or Man City, even Chelsea.”

“It would have to be someone who is more or less guaranteed Champions League football. It is a tough one because he still has years left on his deal and whoever comes in will have to pay top dollar. He will definitely want to get out if they don’t get into the Champions League, that’s what the club will promise him.”

It seems unlikely that Saka would actually angle for a move away from the Emirates next summer. While he may harbour ambitions of playing in Europe’s top competition, he is thought to be very loyal to Arsenal.

Liverpool’s hopes on recruiting the England international would probably hinge on there being a breakdown in negotiations, but there have been no signs that will happen so far.

Journalists, including Fabrizio Romano, believe that Saka intends to sign a contract extension once an agreement on a salary has been reached so, from the sound of things, he could well end speculation about his future soon.
