Report: Liverpool plan summer bid for ‘unique’ player, he has made his decision
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are contemplating a bid for Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka in the summer transfer window, but Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are also interested in the Gunners youngster, according to The Times.
The article has stated that Liverpool are monitoring Saka’s status at Arsenal ‘with a view to a potential summer move’.
Manchester City, the defending Premier League winners, are also keeping an eye on the 21-year-old England international winger, who has been described as “special” by Arsenal veteran Martin Keown in The Daily Mail.
According to The Times, Saka has told Arsenal that he wants to stay.
According to the source, the kid is expected to sign a new contract with Arsenal that will increase his weekly salary from £70,000 to £200,000 per week.
Bukayo Saka is about to sign a new deal with Arsenal, indicating that he is pleased at the club where he grew up and wishes to remain at the Emirates Stadium.
And Arsenal will undoubtedly be reluctant to part with one of their most valuable assets.
If Liverpool are serious about Saka, they should make a bid for him in the summer of 2023, even if he signs a new contract in the following weeks.
What could possibly go wrong?
Arsenal will turn it down.
At the very least, it will demonstrate that Liverpool means business.
