Edu to sell exiting Saka in bid to complete £35 million Arsenal transfer deal
Arsenal director Edu could be forced into cashing in on Bukayo Saka this summer in order to fund approaches for the likes of Martin Odegaard.
Saka has been one of the very best and most exciting players that Mikel Arteta has been able to choose from this season and many fans believe he will go on to become one of the very best wingers in world football.
The versatile 19-year-old has chipped in with five goals and three assists, establishing himself as one of the Premier League’s most exciting young players in the process, but with Arsenal needing financial reinforcement in order to meet Arteta’s transfer aims, there is a chance that he could be moved on during the summer months.
If the Gunners fail to achieve Champions League qualification, a prospect that appears to be highly likely with just eight games until the end of the season, they would come under pressure to sell their high-value stars, according to The Times.
Mikel Arteta knows that he needs to add some more quality to that Arsenal side and although he has become a massive fan of Saka, and would like to keep hold of the player, the right offer would tempt the board into letting him go, the reports claim.
It remains to be seen if Saka will be forced out despite Arteta’s wishes, with Arsenal’s precarious financial situation threatening to pour cold water on any hopes of a summer influx of top talent.
However, there will surely be some kind of outroar if the club did decide to get rid of one of the most exciting players in the Premier League right now, it would be a shock to see him get sold in the summer
