Arsenal’s star Bukayo Saka’s Gunners teammate William Saliba has sung lyrical about him and described the qualities that make the England player stand out from the crowd. The forward is a home favourite among those with Arsenal tickets. 

The first player in the English Premier League this season to reach a double-digit return in both league goals and League assists with 12 and 10, respectively, Saka is having an outstanding season for the league leaders. The 21-year-old consistently creates opportunities for the Gunners and has so far this season given opposition full-backs fits.

At the top of the standings, Arsenal now holds a commanding eight-point lead over nearest rivals and defending champions Manchester City.

At the top of the standings, Arsenal now holds a commanding eight-point lead over nearest rivals and defending champions Manchester City. With a few games remaining, Gunners manager Mikel Arteta is aware that Saka must perform at the top of his game to help the team end its 19-year league title drought. Those with Arsenal tickets will have confidence in their prayers for the hiatus to end. 

Saka can undoubtedly motivate the Gunners to victory, as Saliba’s admiration for his teammate and explanation of why the winger will continue to perform at a high-level show says.

“You can already infer that he is an extremely talented player.” The Arsenal centre-back told Stadium Astro, “despite his youth, the kid is already at the very peak of his game.” “Due to his goodness and humility, I hope he will continue to remain this way. He does not possess a large head.

“He is a terrific man who always works and is joyful. Being able to play with him is fun. This club is a family, and we must continue to operate in that way.

“Of course, I had no idea we would be at the top [of the League] before the summer. But, because Arsenal is a wonderful club, you must consider the top when you play for them. Although we are pleased to be back at the top, our work is not yet done,” words that will be heartwarming to anyone with Arsenal tickets, evident of the hunger of this resurgent squad. 

Saka is rumoured to be close to signing a hugely lucrative contract extension at the Emirates that, plus bonuses, could pay the Three Lions sensation up to an incredible £300,000 per week.

Saliba’s current Arsenal contract is slated to end in the summer of 2024. Therefore fans are eagerly awaiting his decision to follow suit.

Expect the rumour mill to launch into overdrive surrounding Saliba’s likely departure and suitors if Arsenal and Saliba cannot agree sooner rather than later.

Since Saliba provided an upbeat update on his future at Arsenal earlier this year, Gunners supporters do not need to fear just yet.

The France international declared, “I am delighted here.” “My agent and I are communicating with the club, and the only thing I can do is (focus on my football). I’m ecstatic to be here.

 Ian Wright predicts a stellar 2022/23 for Arsenal star.

Ian Wright believes Folarin Balogun can continue his present success at Arsenal next season while on loan in Ligue 1.

Balogun was sent on loan to Reims after fellow centre-forward Gabriel Jesus was recruited by the north Londoners last summer. The club wanted to locate Balogun to a place where the promising frontman would get regular playing time this season. Since then, the Hale End academy graduate has scored 17 league goals, which only Kylian Mbappe and Jonathan David have surpassed in this season’s French top division.

Ian Wright, a former pillar of the Arsenal team, has gushed about Balogun’s potential and backed the young striker to maintain this level of play when he returns to the Emirates Stadium after the current season.

He stated, “Maybe he can come back to Arsenal at some point and prove himself,” on the Wrighty’s House podcast. His degree of confidence has increased.

 “I believe that no matter where he plays in the leagues, he will provide the same level of service as he does now in France.

“It’s the risks he’s taking in that way. He’s in a different frame of mind right now and is confident that he can do it now.

 “If he returns, you can bet he’ll probably pick up where he left off in that league.”

 Transfer Watch

According to El Nacional, Arsenal is interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni this summer to bolster their roster. A move that will be splashing welcomed by those with Arsenal tickets. 

According to the source, the French midfielder has been replaced in Real Madrid’s lineup by fellow countryman Eduardo Camavinga. Madrid will start contract talks with him if an offer of roughly €70 million comes in.

Following an unsuccessful attempt to acquire Eric Garcia in the winter transfer window, Arsenal are reportedly interested in obtaining the disgraced Eric Garcia from Barcelona. Instead, manager Mikel Arteta recruited Spezia’s outstanding defender Jakub Kiwior.

The Gunners are rumoured to be still looking to strengthen their centre defence unit, and while they were rejected for Garcia, things might turn out differently this time.

The Blaugrana are willing to transfer the former Manchester City defender, who has a contract until 2026 and wants to avoid repeating another season of bench-warming like the current one, given the Bosman purchase of Athletic Club defender Iigo Martnez is already planned.

Arsenal is reportedly in the running to acquire French defender Sacha Boey in the summer, according to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb.

The Gunners are considering a move for the right-back, who is 22 years old and has established himself among the best defensive talents in the Turkish League.

The young player’s contract with Galatasaray expires in 2025, and Arsenal would like to sign him in the summer for a fair price.

According to sources from England, Arsenal have reportedly overtaken West Ham United as the frontrunner to recruit Declan Rice. The Hammers have had a disastrous season in England’s top division; if they fall to the Championship, Rice may decide to leave and play in the top League the following summer.

The Three Lions prodigy, who is being watched by several teams, has been impressed by Mikel Arteta at Arsenal. Rice is intrigued by the idea that Arteta may transform budding stars into world-beating players on the pitch, as suggested by the Evening Standard.

The Spaniard’s presence in the Arsenal dugout may be crucial to their effort to entice Declan Rice to come from the other side of London.

After learning that Martin Zubimendi intends to stay with Real Sociedad, Arsenal are trying to reopen negotiations with Brighton over a potential move for Moises Caicedo, according to Football Transfers (via the teamTALK).

With the Gunners turning their attention to Caicedo, Zubimendi has spoken out against leaving his Spanish colleagues behind.

The North London team wanted to sign the midfielder in the January transfer window, but they could not because the Seagulls would not permit him to go in the middle of the campaign.

But, given Mikel Arteta’s desire to upgrade his midfield, Arsenal may contact Brighton again to sign the player.

Rasmus Hojland, the Danish forward, will cost Arsenal £35 million, claims Fichajes. With the English club fighting for his talents, the youthful forward has pleased the Gunners with his excellent form in Italy.

Real Madrid and Juventus are preparing a move for the 20-year-old, giving Mikel Arteta fierce competition.

With Arsenal’s domestic title drought seemingly looking to end, the North Londoners have filled up the Emirates stadium all the way through. Arsenal tickets are currently in high demand, and reliable third-party sellers can help you source authentic tickets.
