Coming through the Arsenal Academy, Bukayo Saka announced himself to the world int he 19/20 season with his impressive performances, deadly delivery and ability to adapt around the pitch despite his young age.

For a while, Saka had us worried that he might head off somewhere new, but the Arsenal lad was delighted to sign a new deal, tying him to the club for the foreseeable future.

Before he signed this new deal, the 18-year-old Bukayo Saka earned £3kpw, a handsome salary for us mere mortals.

Bukayo Saka has now seen his salary increased x 10 to £30kpw.

We now also know the club showed their faith in Bukayo Saka by promising him the number seven shirt when it was time to launch the new kit.

The teenager has now made 63 appearances for the senior team, more than he played for the u18 (26) or u23 (25) sides.

35 have come this season, along with all four of his goals and 11 assists.

Still only 19, Bukayo Saka has made himself a first-team starter at Arsenal.

Six goals and five assists in 26 appearances this season tell only a fraction of the whole story. He now has more than all other Premier League teenagers combined, for instance.

He also has four goals and two assists in his last six Premier League games.

Saka has entertained, thrilled and dazzled us all, a rare shining light in what has been one of the most boring Arsenal sides seen in a generation.

According to Transfermarkt, Bukayo Saka is the third most valuable player who was born in 2001. They have just Mason Greenwood (£45.5m) and Rodryo (£40.5m) ahead of him.

Worldwide, Saka is now the 121st most valuable player and 48th in the Premier League.

In terms of English players, he’s 14th and when it comes to left midfield he’s number one –  in the world.

Starting with a value of just over £6m when he arrived on the scene in September 2019, Bukayo Saka is now valued at £36m.
