Ex-Gunner fears Arsenal could lose top talent to a club like Man City

Ex-Arsenal man, Ray Parlour, is worried about the Gunners losing Bukayo Saka to another Premier League club.

The England international has emerged as one of the finest players in the Premier League in recent seasons and has been in smashing form for Mikel Arteta’s side.

His performances for the club have understandably caught the attention of other European giants.

The Gunners will have to do their best to keep the Euro 2020 finalist happy so that other clubs don’t tempt him with a move away.

Parlour says Arsenal has a group of players that can continue to develop well before admitting keeping them would be the hard job the club has to do.

“I look at the young team [at Arsenal], they can develop and keep improving,’ Parlour told TalkSport via Mirror Sport.

“You know what the hardest thing is going to be? It’s keeping the players.

“You know [what’s happened] over the years. Saka must be on people’s radar all day long, a big side like Manchester City must be looking at him going, ‘he’ll improve our side.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Saka has been one of the standout players in England in the last few seasons, and it is only a matter of time before top clubs start knocking on our door to sign him.

However, we can prevent that from happening by strengthening the team and winning trophies.

If Arsenal becomes successful, it would be hard for our players to want to leave the club.

  1. I like Ray, hes a fun guy and Arsenal through and through. But this sort of commentary only adds fuel to the fire IMO. There really is no need for it. I hope like last summer with ESR, that we lock Saka into a long term contract and give him the raise he deserves. He’s only on £30k a week that needs sorting.

  2. If it was just one or two quality young players and Arsenal were languishing in mid-table, then yes, maybe Ray would have a point. But now most of the team are red hot young players that are doing great and would have beaten Man City in the last game if it wasn’t for some quality diving & the usual recklessness from Mr Xhaka. Add a few more signings (Isak/Vlahovic/Replacement for Xhaka) and you have a team that can challenge for big trophies.

  3. Up to Saka to speak to the club about more money, which he deserves, he got the no7 shirt last time & now it should be a nice raise and better contract.

    But if he wants to go he needs to speak up but i dont see him leaving.
