Ben Jacobs, a CBS journalist who has been interviewing an interesting behind the scenes aspect of Arsenal, has been chatting about The Done Deal Show.

The journalist has been mentioning Bukayo Sakas' future and a potential new deal for the winger.

Saka has been reported by both Manchester City and Liverpool for his performances for Arsenal for quite some time, but as you may expect, the Gunners are keen to keep hold of their young star.

Mikel Arteta is so keen to keep Saka in his possession that, according to Jacobs, he has gone directly to the Arsenal hierarchy to request that the youngster be given a new contract.

What has been said?

Jacobs touched on the Sakas situation.

Saka is untouchable at this stage, according to my understanding, and that Mikel Arteta has made it clear to the Arsenal hierarchy that he wants a new deal, and Saka is quite willing to sign that as well. The links to Man City arent genuine, according to Jacobs.

Better than any signing

Saka's signing of a new contract is better news for Arsenal than any new player's arrival.

Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko are exciting additions, but Saka is the Gunners' jewel in the crown, and securing his future is of vital importance.

Saka may make a major-money move one day, but tying him down to a new contract now protects his future and protects Arsenal from losing a prized asset for a lower price.

Arsenal might do the best job of all right now, involving Saka to sign a new deal.
