Pundit tells Arsenal to sort out the long-term future of three key players

Arsenal is riding high on the league table now courtesy of the fine form of some of their players.

Mikel Arteta’s side is one of the teams who could win the league title this season, and the ex-midfielder is working miracles with the same group that couldn’t make the top four last season.

They have added some men to the group who have been in tremendously good form.

However, some players who have been on their books for longer are leading the way.

Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba have been on Arsenal’s books since at least 2019, although the latter has just started playing for them.

Their contracts are running down and they need to be renewed. Former Leeds United man, Noel Whelan, believes they should tie each of them down to a new long-term deal now.

He tells Football Insider:

“Those three players have to be the priority with the start they’ve made to the season.

“If you’re trying to build something, and you want a squad which is the finished article, those three are massively important.

“Arsenal have to get this nipped in the bud before January and get negotiations underway.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

As these players impress, other top teams are monitoring them, and they will pounce to sign them if they become available.

We must show we mean business by handing each one of them a new deal for at least the next five seasons.

  1. Once again a pundit stating the obvious!!!

    I wonder how much he gets paid to make such “earth shattering” observations?

    1. YES Ken, It must come dowm to money! These frequent statements of the extremely obvious from nonentities, many of whom have never had any conection inany way at all to our club, so beloved by those running JA, are boring and tedious beyond belief.

  2. Should have been done in the summer ,how many times have we let players enter their final year in the last 5 seasons.
    Not to worried about Saka but Saliba and Martinelli I am .
    Talks on going apparently but that’s been mentioned for the last 4-6 months ,how bloody long does it take to give an offer and the player excepts?
    Clubs will already be circling,get it done .

  3. The coming months are important for the futur of thèse three in the club…Saka seems underway Saliba also but Martenelli has to be added and WE have a team for the next decade!!!
