Former England international reckons Saka to Liverpool would be a good move

Former England player, Glen Johnson believes a move to Liverpool will interest Bukayo Saka.

The 20-year-old has become arguably Arsenal’s most important player this season.

His fine performances for the Gunners since he broke into the first team have caught the attention of rival clubs in the Premier League.

Liverpool is one of them, and reports even linked the Reds with a move for him before he signed his latest deal with the club.

Now, Johnson, who spent a number of seasons at Anfield as a player, says the attacker is the right fit for his former club and he would likely want the move to the former European champions.

He said via Sun Sports: “As he’s a fantastic player, a young player and English then it would have to be a big deal.

“In terms of Liverpool and the player being interested in a move then I believe that for sure but I just think it would be quite a complex deal to pull off.

“I do think it would be a good move for Saka because any chance you get to sign for one of the best teams around, as a young player, it’s going to be appealing.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Saka is one player we should expect to spend a long time at Arsenal, considering his ties to the club.

The Euro 2020 star is still at the beginning of his career and will achieve greater things in it.

However, we need to guard against losing the 20-year-old to a rival because it would be embarrassing.

While trying to sign players that will support Mikel Arteta’s efforts to make us a top club again, the club needs to keep improving Saka’s contract before it’s too late.

    Arsenal and managing contracts….biggest joke!

    MA and Edu are extremely reactive when it comes to asset management, probably a whole list of players nearing the 2 years remaining mark.

    Liverpool have just signed 2 players, Roba Telli and Nika Motor.

    I’ve said this before Liverpool are coming towards the most challenging time under Klopp.

    They’ll have 9-10 players all over 30 in and around their 1st team squad by the start of next season. Becker, Matip, Van Dijk, Henderson, Milner, Thiago, Firminho, Mane, Salah all part of that.

    You can leave Becker out of the conversation as GK go on into their late 30’s. But looking at the others, their all key players, 4 of them World Class. Plus then they have players who are good but either injury prone like Ox and Keita, or youngsters who can’t seem to win their place in the first 11 permanently.

    These players have started their physical decline or are well into it. That means sometime in the next 2 years Liverpool will have to sign 8-9 players. Liverpool are not a club with huge amount of money and have owners like ours that don’t tend to plow cash into the club.

    Unless they sell their stars like Salah and Mane before their values seriously decline their going to struggle. How much would it cost Liverpool to sign a replacement for Henderson, Van Dijk, Salah and Mane, in today’s market, easily 70-150 million each. Saka will cost them 100-150m providing we get him on a nice long contract

    Plus their wage structure restricts them signing free agents of top quality. As we’ve seen with Ramsey for example, clubs in Europe will pay big wages and sign on fees for players they don’t have to stump up a transfer fee for.

    Its going to be really tricky for them. Any young players should see how the the next 2 seasons plays out before moving to the Reds
