LONDON (AP) – Arsenal secured homegrown star Bukayo Saka (AP, pic below) to an extended contract on Tuesday as together they target a first Premier League title in 20 years after being outlasted by Manchester City this season.
The 21-year-old England winger signed through 2027 with the club he joined as a boy and made a first-team debut with four seasons ago.
“I think this is the right club, the right place to make the next step,” Saka said in a statement on Arsenal’s website. “It’s a beautiful club – look where we are.”
Saka has scored 14 goals this season, two more than the previous campaign, and appeared in each of Arsenal’s Premier League games.
