Bukayo Saka will sign a new deal for Arsenal ‘very soon’, as per Fabrizio Romano.
The 21-year-old has a contract at the north London club until 2024, and he is yet to sign a new deal.
Three clubs in England and abroad were monitoring Saka’s contract situation for a long time but Romano has claimed that the young winger will stay at the club, and he is not going anywhere.
There are “no changes in plans”, while Saka has given his verbal commitment to the club already.

Bukayo Saka contract news
A product of the club’s academy, Saka made his senior debut for the Gunners in 2018.
Since then, he has managed 35 goals in 165 games for the club, but the current season is arguably his best.
He has scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists in the Premier League, and fans and pundits are raving about his potential.
According to the Daily Mail, Saka will earn close to £15million-a-season when he signs the new deal at the club.
Initially, Saka had agreed in principle to a new long-term deal in the region of £10m-a-year, but the true value of the deal including bonuses and other attached payments – is closer to £15m per year, taking his weekly wage to around £300,000-per-week.
Best right-back in the world?
Saka is emerging as one of the players of the season and he has been equally brilliant for England as well, after he scored in the 2-0 win over Ukraine last Sunday.
Chris Sutton believes that Saka is currently the best right-winger in the world.
He argues that while there are a few contenders for the best left-wingers in world football, Saka is winning the battle on the right.
The likes of Mohamed Salah, Riyad Mahrez, and Anthony are behind Saka at the moment in terms of performance and output, and Sutton has been left impressed by the youngster’s decision-making.
Saka is a fantastic young talent and there is no limit to his potential. The Gunners will make him the best-paid player at the club once he pens the new deal.
