EPL: Arsenal now have a new prized asset


North London outfit can now boast of a new prized asset with England international Bukayo Saka since he emerged as a first-team player under manager Mikel Arteta.

A lot of things have changed since manager Mikel Arteta took over at the Emirates Stadium and one of the testimonies is Bukayo Saka who has turned out to be a favourite in the team with his impressive performance.

More to being a promising attacker and always finding a space in the first team, Bukayo Saka has been invited to the England senior national team, where he has also given a good account of himself to have attracted praise from coaches and pundits.

However, WhoScored.com has rated Bukayo Saka as one of the top teenagers in Europe’s top five leagues this season. He is behind Giovanni Reyna of Borussia Dortmund and Ansu Fati of Barcelona respectively.

The Arsenal player is rated 7.21 behind Ansu Fati who is rated 8.13 and Giovanni Reyna tops the chart with 8.14

The rating is, however, expected to reflect on the value of the players and there is no doubt that Bukayo Saka would be valued highly by the North London outfit, especially after he recently signed a new contract that should keep him at the Emirates Stadium for more years.
