GERMAN CLUBS TARGET SAKA

GERMAN CLUBS TARGET SAKA

Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka is a target for Bundesliga clubs.

The Gunners risk losing the winger, 17, who has been watched by German scouts playing for the club’s Under-23s and in his three first-team appearances this season.

The Sun reports that clubs are aware Saka cannot sign a new deal at the Emirates until he turns 18 in September.

The winger penned his first professional contract with the Gunners last year and was tipped by Arsenal’s Acacemy manager Per Mertesacker for a great future at the club.

But he could now follow suit of other Brits flocking down to Germany, hoping for a similar career breakthrough Jadon Sancho made at Borussia Dortmund.

Unai Emery gave the teenager his debut in November and he has been named in the England Under-19 squad to face Czech Republic, Greece and Denmark in behind-closed-doors matches this month.

Saka then made a full home debut for the Gunners in the Europa League against Qarabag Agdam in December and played seven minutes in the Premier League against Fulham.

The teenager put up an impressive display against the Azerbaijani side, which evenearned him comparisons to Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo.

And he gave credit for the dazzling performance to his mum and dad, revealing they had sent him to bed early prior to the game after learning he would start the match.

Saka has scored 10 goals and assisted in a further 8 in 27 games this season.
