Extending Bukayo Saka’s contract remains a “priority” for Arsenal this summer, according to Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano.

The England international has emerged as one of the country’s top young attacking talents in recent seasons and has become one of the first names on the team sheet at The Emirates under Mikel Arteta.

The 20-year-old, who came through Arsenal’s youth system, started 36 of Arsenal’s 38 games in the Premier League last season, scoring 11 goals and notching up seven assists as the Gunners just missed out on a top-four finish.

Saka has also become a key player for England in recent months and made four appearances for the Three Lions at last summer’s Euro 2020 tournament.

The attacking midfielder’s current contract at Arsenal is due to expire in the summer of 2024 and the Gunners are understandably likely to be keen to tie him down to a new and improved deal.

Now, Italian reporter Romano has taken to social media to claim that the Gunners are working to secure Saka’s future, with the player himself “happy” at The Emirates as the terms of the proposed new “long-term” deal continue to be discussed.

Posting on his personal Twitter account, Romano said: “Bukayo Saka’s contract extension has always been priority for Arsenal, talks are still ongoing with his agent in order to reach full agreement on long-term deal.

“Saka’s happy with Arsenal project, discussing on salary details.”

He was part of the Arsenal to to have won the FA Cup in 2019 under Mikel Arteta.
