Bukayo Saka signs new contract until 2027

Buyako Saka has signed a new contract to stay at Arsenal until 2027, saying the club “is the right place to make the next step”.

This season, the English attacker has 14 goals and 11 assists for the Gunners. He has played in every Premier League game for Arsenal over the past two seasons at the age of just 21, and he has made 178 appearances for the club so far.

“I’m just really happy,” said Saka.

“There’s been a lot of talking and it’s been a while, but I’m here now. I think this is the right club, the right place to make the next step. It’s a beautiful club – look where we are.

“For me, it’s about achieving my personal ambitions – how much I push myself and demand from myself each game, week in, week out. Then I have all the right people around me in terms of family, and when I come to the training ground, my team-mates, the coaching staff.

“I think I have everything I need to become the best player I can be, and that’s why I’m happy to stay here and be here for the future, because I really believe that we can achieve big things.”

The previous deal of Saka was set to conclude at the end of the 2023–24 campaign.

Following falling short to Manchester City for the Premier League championship, second-placed Arsenal will visit Wolves in their final game of the year on Sunday.

The Gunners will return to Champions League competition in the upcoming season following a six-year sabbatical.

“I have seen a lot of change. I’ve seen this team and the club grow, and one thing that everyone around us can be excited about is that we are going in the right direction,” added Saka.

“Time is on our side. You can look at our team and a lot of the players are young. We’re hungry, and a lot of us haven’t won trophies at Arsenal so we want to achieve big things. If you watch the way we all speak, we want to win and we want to win here.”

Manager Mikel Arteta said: “It’s great for the club that Bukayo has extended his contract. Retaining our best young talents is key to our continued progress and Bukayo represents such an important part of our squad now and for the future.
