‘Trust me’ – Liverpool warned that Arsenal star is not available this summer

Kevin Campbell has categorically insisted that Bukayo Saka will not be sold by Arsenal this summer, despite reported interest from both Manchester City and Liverpool.

Our young forward has been the club’s Player of the Year for the last two seasons, and has earned himself a regular England squad role despite the fact that he won’t hit 21 years-old until September.

His form was always going to attract plenty of attention, but he has shown nothing to hint that he would be looking to leave the club any time soon, and former Gunner Campbell believes that any efforts to sign him would take months of negotiation, more months than is left until the summer transfer window closes on September 1.

“He is already under contract,” Campbell told The Highbury Squad. “These things are not just going to get done in a couple of months. These things could take six months but Arsenal are not, trust me, they are not going to sell Saka in this window. No chance. No chance.”

This will be music to the ears of any worried fans, but I don’t feel as though a move away has been on the cards at all in recent windows. The club is showing ambition and promise, and with the ever-growing excitement around our current project, it seems crazy to think that any of our key players would be pushing for the exit door.

Do you think Saka could have his head turned this summer if certain clubs made their interest public?

  1. No, Saka is not going anywhere.

    Off topic but there is a car in Colney training ground car park with Dutch number plates …. could it be Martinez’s agent?

      1. No but I do know a couple of people who work at the training ground SueP as I lived in London Colney (or Cold n Lonely as we called it) for 15 years until recently.

  2. I appreciate and admire loyalty, but never expect it. He is still young, but if we can’t improve as a team this year and miss top 4 again, I would not be surprised if his head gets turned.

    As far as extending his contract, if Nketiah is making 100k, then better start around 150k with Saka. What they can offer and deliver is miles apart.

    Unfortunately I expect other extensions to be astronomical as well, given what Nketiah was offered. I’m sure agents gleefully awaiting negotiations with Arsenal.

  3. We should not put too much pressure/hope on Saka. No one is guaranteed a regular spot in the team. If we find a better winger, we should go for it. It is a competitive sport. There should be no room for complacency.

  4. The arrogance of Liverpool is beyond me. They never won the EPL for 30yrs. They won it during Covid time and they won the CL and world championship but is like no club has done that before. They keeping on hitting their chest as if there is no club bar them.

    Last season they pushed City hard but couldn’t cross the line and ended up with FA Cup and the League Cup which they won without scoring a goal.

    We had chances to beat them here but for Lacazette the flop, Odegaad and Martinelli who has no end product, and missed sitters we could’ve beaten them at the Emirates.

    We shouldn’t allow them to take all three points this year and their arrogance of tapping up Saka is disgraceful.

      Lets be honest that’s how it has always been. Title challenging clubs always attracted Top players from clubs that are not challenging.
      And Liverpool have always been a very attractive club even after 30 years of not winning the league. They are a massive global giant.. Bigger brand than Arsenal.. They are even more attractive at the moment due to their recent successes, they have a top manager too.. If any club happens to finish above the other club regularly then that club will become more attractive to players.. Remember Suarez? He wanted to move to Arsenal because we seemed to be much more stable in the Top 4 than Liverpool at that time. Remember Sanchez? He too chose us ahead of Liverpool back then because we were a much more stable Top 4 club at that time..

      Success breeds success. That’s the nature of reality. If you are successful at anything you will attract attention. Wenger did it for us too, he won 3 titles and that made us a very attractive force until we stopped challenging again. And even to this day we are still riding on the earlier wenger success when it comes to a certain level / tier type of player..

      It’s does not matter how long you were not successful, what matters mostly is the here, now and after for most players. Chelsea and City were joke clubs before their billionaires sugar daddies showed up, they started winning titles and that has seen them attract some of the best sought after talents. I don’t think many players first think about where Chelsea or City were 30 years ago. They just look at the current success and future probable future trajectory of the clubs.. “If I am to move or remain at Liverpool vs Arsenal right now, what are my chances of challenging / winning the League or CL in 4-5 year?”.

      And Watch out for Newcastle too, they have a murdering Dictator as their new owner. Give it about 6-10 years and they might be the new Chelsea, City, PSG etc..

      My own personal opinion of course..😊
