“Bukayo Saka is going to become Arsenal’s highest paid player. Saliba, we’re expecting him to sign a new long-term deal very soon. Again, it’s a matter of time before that is completed. Saliba wants to stay at the club so there’s no real surprise that he’s going to put pen to paper. He’s someone Mikel Arteta really values.”
“He’s come into the team and cemented that spot alongside Gabriel, great news again for Arsenal as William Saliba and Bukayo Saka are set to put pen to paper on new long-term deals, Saka is all agreed and Saliba very close.”
