Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Bukayo Saka were seen dining together at high-end London Mayfair restaurant, Novikov, after the team’s dramatic late victory over Bournemouth.
The restaurant, has an Asian room and an Italian room, and it’s unknown which one they dined in or what they ordered. Novikov also offer private dining.
Some have speculated that a new contract for Saka, whose current deal expires next year, may have been on the menu.
Arsenal have reportedly agreed verbally with Bukayo Saka to extend his contract to June 2028.
Saka, who will likely see his wages rise to around £200,000 a week, is set to become one of Arsenal’s top earners.
The 21-year-old winger’s current contract is due to expire next summer, but he has always intended to sign a new deal with the club that he first joined in 2008.
Saka’s excellent form this season has not done his negotiating position any harm. He has scored 11 league goals from the right wing, and only Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has more than Saka’s nine league assists.
With Gabriel Martinelli renewing his contract until 2027 in February, the focus now shifts to new deals for Aaron Ramsdale and William Saliba.
