Coming through the Arsenal Academy, Saka announced himself to the world this season with his impressive performances, deadly delivery and ability to adapt around the pitch despite his young age.

For a while, he 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, Saka,18, was earning £3kpw, a handsome salary for us mere mortals but this has now, reportedly, been increased x 10 to £30kpw.

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

The teenager has now made 42 appearances for the senior team, more than he played for the u18 (26) or u23 (25) sides.
