In case Saul makes a permanent switch to Stamford Bridge, Atletico Madrid could target Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka.

Atletico Madrid gaffer Diego Simeone has his eye on the versatile Englishman. With his performances, the youngster is establishing himself as a key figure for club and country.

Saka still has three years left to run on his contract at the Emirates, but whilst it’s highly unlikely that the Gunners will sell him, the interest is still there.

Atletico Madrid are eager to bring in the young winger.

Reports claim that Diego Simeone wants his midfield with Saul’s loan move to Chelsea possibly becoming permanent next summer.

The La Liga winners sanctioned a deadline day move for Saul so they could resign Antoine Griezmann from Barcelona on loan. However, the forward’s loan comes with an obligation to buy for a fraction of the price they sold him for just two years ago.

If Chelsea sign Saul permanently, Atletico will receive around £30,000,000.

With interest from Atletico Madrid and Juventus, Arsenal must ideally look to retain their star youngster Saka

However, al in all, the Gunners will not allow the 20-year-old to depart on the cheap.

Interest comes from Italy as well, with Juventus also considering a swoop for Saka. Fortunately for Gunners’ fans, Mikel Arteta will entertain bids only above £42,800,000 for the England international.

Saka is contracted to Arsenal until 2024. He still awaits his first goal contribution of the new Premier League campaign.
