Juventus and Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in Bukayo Saka, but Arsenal aren’t going to sell for less than €50m.
Calciomercato report that Juventus have joined Atletico Madrid in following Bukayo Saka. They claim Arsenal value the winger at no less than €50m.
Realistically, that figure should be even higher. Saka is just 20 years old and Arsenal’s most recent Player of the Season, as well as being a regular for England – for whom he’s won plenty of Player of the Match awards already.
Earlier this month, in his latest appearance for England, Saka scored one and set up two more to win the fan vote once again. You can back him to start scoring again for his club using these mobile betting apps.
Then there’s the fact Saka is in the final 40 on the Golden Boy shortlist, or that he still has a contract until 2024. It’s hard to see why Arsenal would consider selling even for €50m.
But this isn’t the first we’ve heard about outside interest. Fabrizio Romano reported last week that some clubs were starting to make contact with Saka over a potential future move.
At the time, Romano clarified that they weren’t making any offers, and Arsenal consider the player ‘untouchable’. But these unnamed clubs are already sounding the youngster out.
If Calciomercato’s report is correct, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are two of the teams with an interest.
Ideally, Arsenal would start getting to work on a new deal for Saka as soon as possible. Even just a one-year extension to keep the issue at bay during this transition period would be a big help.
