Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka will have an important role to play in the World Cup this year. This claim was made by Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.
Hence, it is clear that Saka is one of the best wingers in Europe. Although, the winger has to prove himself for the England national team in the major tournaments.
THE RISE OF BUKAYO SAKA AT ARSENAL
Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka is now the first name on the team sheet for the Gunners. He has come a long way from the academy and the youth teams. The winger also finished in the top 10 rankings for the Kopa Trophy. Hence, the Gunners are looking to offer him a more bigger contract extension. They want to make the England winger one of the highest-paid player in the squad.
Manchester City were also linked with his services in the previous summer transfer window. However, the winger has made it clear that he sees his long-term future at Arsenal under Mikel Arteta. Hence, negotiations are going on. Mikel Arteta has also said that both parties are in positive negotiations and are close to an agreement with each other.
WAYNE ROONEY ALSO ADMIRES THE TALENTED OF THE YOUNG ENGLAND WINGER
Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has also praised the ability of the Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka. He has also praised his brilliant form for the Gunners in the last two to three seasons. The former England international has also said that he expects Gareth Southgate to start in all the World Cup games. Hence, the future looks bright for the Gunners winger according to Rooney.
He further said,
“Saka has been fantastic again this season for Arsenal.”
He also said that the Gunners team suddenly looks more dangerous when he is on the pitch. Hence, it looks like Bukayo Saka is also winning praise from the legends of the game. Hence, Arsenal will hope to get his contract extension done at the earliest during the World Cup break or after the World Cup.
Arsenal will also hope that the winger returns from the World Cup without a major injury. This is because they are first on the Premier League table this season. Hence, the contributions of Saka and all his Gunners teammates will be very important.
