Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta says it is down to the club to sort out Bukayo Saka’s contract situation while he concentrates on getting the best out of the teenager on the pitch.
The 18-year-old has become the Gunners’ first-choice left-back under Mikel Arteta, despite his desire to play in his natural winger role.
He earned plaudits with his performance in the 4-0 win over Newcastle and registered the match-winning assist away to Olympiacos in the Europa League – his ninth assist of the season, more than any other Arsenal player.
Saka is out of contract next summer and has already revealed he is leaving talks to extend his stay at the Emirates to his representatives.
“My priority is that he continues to play like he is doing and he keeps developing. He is always asking the right questions.
“He is a very brave guy. Every time he gets into the final third, he is trying to cause problems for the opponent. He deserves these chances, he is doing very well and that’s why he is in the team.
“He’s great for the club. If we can get players from the academy and give them real chances even when we have other people fit, it shows we believe in them. He’s responded well.”
