Bukayo Saka insists he is at the ‘right club’ to make the next step in his career after signing a new long-term contract at Arsenal.
Saka has put pen to paper on a new contract with the Gunners, who have been working on deals to secure the futures of their leading names.
The 21-year-old has had a brilliant campaign for the north Londoners, in which he has scored 13 goals in the Premier League and provided a further 11 assists.
Saka came through the academy at Arsenal and has since evolved into one of the Premier League’s leading talents, while he was named as the Gunners’ Player of the Season in 2020/21 and 2021/22.
Arsenal impressed under Mikel Arteta this season to mount a title challenge and secure Champions League qualification and Saka believes he is in the right place to continue his development.
“I think this is the right club, the right place to make the next step,” Saka told Arsenal.com.
“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 teammates, 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.”
On Saka’s new deal, Arteta told the club’s official website: “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.
“As well as being a fantastic talent, Bukayo is a special person, he’s loved by us all and he is a credit to himself and his family for the hard work and commitment they have all made to get to this level today. Together with our supporters, we’re so looking forward to enjoying Bukayo’s continued development with us in the years to come.”
