Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka has now reportedly the 14th highest transfer market value in football. Hence, he is currently worth a mega valuation of 96 million.

BUKAYO SAKA’S MARKET VALUATION RISES AGAIN THIS SEASON
Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka’s market valuation has reportedly risen again this season. The report also claims that the Gunners star winger is worth around 96 million. Hence, there is a big chance that his valuation will reach 100 million by the end of the season. The England winger was also one of the bright spots in the forward position against Newcastle United. However, he could not prevent a goalless draw against the Magpies. Although, he did cause Dan Burn all sorts of trouble in a 1 vs 1 situation.
However, Eddie Howe immediately put Joelinton to support Dan Burn. Hence, the England winger rarely got this 1vs 1 situation. Although, he did put in some brilliant passes and crosses from the right-winger. However, his Arsenal teammates could not finish the chances. Although, his brilliant performance will encourage Mikel Arteta to make a winger and striker signing in the January transfer window. The brilliant performance also indicates that the Premier League giants should secure his long-term quickly as they can.
ARSENAL WILL HOPE TO SECURE A LONG-TERM CONTRACT AGREEMENT WITH THEIR STAR PLAYER
According to reports, Arsenal are having positive discussions with Saka’s agent to extend the contract. However, there is still no full agreement to extend his long-term contract.

However, Arsenal will also have to keep an eye on Manchester City. This is because the report also claims that Manchester City are also monitoring the situation of the England winger. Pep Guardiola sees him as one of the best youngsters in the world. Hence, it is clear that Bukayo Saka has admirers at Manchester City. However, his priority is to stay with his boyhood club for the future. Hence, this is the reason Arsenal are relaxed about his contract situation.
Arsenal will also hope secure long-term contract agreements for Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba. Hence, it is clear that Mikel Arteta wants to build a team around the young group of players. They are currently top of the Premier League table. The Gunners are also one of the favorites to win the Europa League trophy this season.
