Saka shines in Qatar 0

Posted on November 22, 2022 by Harry Kettle

England fans rejoiced last night as the Three Lions kickstarted their World Cup campaign in style.

They arrived in Qatar with a whole lot of confidence and as one of the favourites to win the entire tournament. When put up against Iran, they made sure to let the world know what they were about.

England stuck six goals past Iran in a 6-2 thrashing and part of the scoresheet was the one and only Bukayo Saka.

The youngster was on fire throughout the course of his time on the pitch and that included him scoring a brace, continuing to prove just how effective he is in front of goal.

Fabrizio Romano: Interest in Edu and Saka, both focused on Arsenal 0

Posted on October 19, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Fabrizio Romano has put out an interesting new video where he talks about certain rumours and behind-the-scenes discussions involving Arsenal. The two topics the Italian transfer specialist covers there are technical director Edu and, unsurprisingly, Bukayo Saka.

The Gunners appointed their former midfielder into the role in July, 2019, in a very difficult moment. His first real task was to try and make sense of the situation that was the work of the trio of Ivan Gazidis, Sven Mislintat and Raul Sanllehi, and steer the club in the right direction from thereon. Arsenal had just lost the Europa League final to Chelsea and their hopes of returning to the Champions League were dashed, and a couple of months later, Unai Emery was sacked and Mikel Arteta appointed.

Gabriel Martinelli is on course to sign a new contract with Arsenal, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Apparently, the talks on the subject have been going on for weeks and the Brazilian winger has no other thought than remaining at the Emirates for the foreseeable future.

This is obviously great news for Arsenal. Martinelli has been fantastic so far this season, playing a major role in the team’s fight to stay at the top of the Premier League table and crowning his sublime form with a goal and an assist in the huge win over Liverpool on Sunday. Since the start of the term, he’s scored four goals and assisted twice in 11 matches in all competitions, and he’s been a nightmare to defend against coming from the left attacking flank.

Arsenal have returned to the top of the Premier League table after beating Liverpool 3-2 at the Emirates on Sunday, courtesy of an early opener from Gabriel Martinelli and a brace from Bukayo Saka. Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino struck for the visitors.

It was a lively affair throughout, with Martinelli’s goal coming within a minute from the kick-off and forcing Liverpool to attack more fiercely than they would have done otherwise. The balance of the game changed with relative frequency, but it could be said that Liverpool controlled most of the proceedings in the first half and Arsenal took over after the break.

It’s always great to reach a milestone and it’s even more rewarding to see players of your club get to a landmark point in their career, which is why it was so great to see both Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale being awarded special medals for reaching 100 appearances in the Premier League.

Saka has been playing at the top level since New Year’s Day 2019, when he became the first player born in the 21st century to play in the top flight – and it’s safe to say he hasn’t looked back since.

Arteta confident about Saka signing new contract 0

Posted on August 19, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta appeared pretty confident about Bukayo Saka signing a new contract with club while speaking to the media ahead to the Bournemouth trip, scheduled for Saturday late afternoon.

Yet to turn 21, Saka quickly erupted onto the Premier League scene, first taking the opportunity to fill in for Kieran Tierney at left-back, but now deployed on the right attacking flank – the perfect position for him to display the full variety of his talents. Naturally, such potential will always be attracting attention from rival clubs in the hope of snatching the player away, and there’s certainly no shortage of reported interest.

Bukayo Saka voted Player of the Season 0

As confirmed through the official channels of the club, Bukayo Saka has been voted by the supporters as the Arsenal Player of the Season, comfortably beating Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale to the award.

The 20-year-old winger played a total of 43 games for the Gunners in 2021/22, scoring 12 goals and producing seven assists. Of those 43 appearances, 36 were Premier League starts – an impressive feat for such a young player. There can be no sensible doubt that Saka is the most exciting young player at any club in the English top flight right now.

Arsenal duo nominated for PL Young Player of the Year 0

As per Arsenal.com, Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale have both been nominated for the Premier League Young Player of the Year award.

While it seems the Gunners won’t achieve their ultimate goal of winning silverware or finishing in the top four, we’ve certainly seen a few breakout stars come to the forefront throughout the course of the campaign. Arsenal, as a club, are starting to be recognised as the kind of team that wants to bring through fresh youngsters – and that’s exactly the kind of approach that has helped Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale get the nod.

Posted on April 15, 2022 by Harry Kettle

Bukayo Saka has been having arguably his best season as a professional footballer and up to this point, he’s been rewarded for it with a series of awards. The majority of them have come from within the Arsenal camp but now, he’s managed to earn an honour as the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for March.

In the 3-2 win over Watford he was able to provide Martin Odegaard with a nice assist before scoring a goal of his own, cementing his status as a man who is capable of changing the game at any minute.

Bukayo Saka has left the England camp for this international break and returned to the club following a positive test to COVID-19, the Arsenal winger has confirmed. Gareth Southgate hasn’t called up anyone to replace him as his team prepare to take on Switzerland on Saturday.
