Bukayo Saka, a top player for Arsenal, has been advised to consider leaving the club if he wants to add additional titles to his resume soon.
Over the past few years, the Hale End academy graduate has occasionally carried the fortunes of his boyhood club on his back, displaying a level of maturity undoubtedly beyond his years. Bukayo Saka’s career has become better and better after Unai Emery gave him his debut in November 2018.
Bukayo Saka Told To Leave Arsenal And Join Man City
The dynamic player, who is currently 21 years old, is a trusted England international throughout the most important matches for both club and country. He has not, however, yet had a prominent role in a team that has won a championship.

When Arsenal last won a trophy in 2020, Bukayo Saka was unable to play in either the FA Cup final or semifinal. Bukayo Saka is undoubtedly eager to end his trophy drought as soon as possible.
David James, a former goalkeeper for Liverpool and England, believes that Bukayo Saka should leave the Etihad and join Manchester City in the face of interest from Pep Guardiola’s team. The Arsenal player is reportedly seen by many at the top of the City hierarchy as the ideal replacement for the recently-departed Raheem Sterling.
For the past two years in a row, Bukayo Saka has been named Arsenal’s Player of the Year. Saka finished the previous season as the Gunners’ leading scorer with 12 goals in all competitions.
The absence of Champions League football, though, is soon going to be something Bukayo Saka really notices. Mikel Arteta, the manager, is surely working incredibly hard to try and lock down the 21-year-old winger to a new contract because his current one ends in the summer of 2024.
Arsenal’s quick start to the new season will undoubtedly help them in discussions, but City, who have won four of the previous five titles and are only one point behind Arsenal in second place, would be a difficult team to turn down if they came knocking.
James appears to agree, as he stated to GGRecon that he can, however, understand why players want to transfer and he really appreciates what Mikel Arteta is doing at Arsenal, and Bukayo Saka is a significant part of it.
According to James, “Which option is best for Bukayo? Because Arsenal is creating something and hasn’t won the league in 18 years, staying there will allow you to be a part of a revolution in a way”.
