Bukayo Saka is a “top player,” according to Mikel Arteta.
Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has stated that Bukayo Saka is an elite football player.
The 22-year-old, who came through the Hale End academy, made his senior debut in 2018 before becoming a key member of Arteta’s starting eleven in subsequent seasons.
The young player has already earned a spot in the starting eleven for the England national team and is currently regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe.
At the pre-match press conference prior to Arsenal’s Champions League match against RC Lens, Arteta stated that Saka is one of Arsenal’s best players, so it is understandable that opposing defenders would treat him differently.
Saka has been exhibiting consistency, which is uncommon for players Saka’s age, and has performed amazingly well over the last few years since making his debut, according to the Spaniard.
Saka is undoubtedly a top-tier player, according to Arteta, who also notes that Saka has already demonstrated his ability on the club and international levels.
Arteta lavishes Saka with praise.
Saka is being targeted because, as the teams are aware, he is one of our most dangerous players, and they make an effort to neutralize our advantages. When you consider his stats and consistency, you can see that he has accomplished a great deal for his age—especially in those positions at elite clubs. His accomplishments in the five years [since his debut] are astounding. It is a huge affirmation for him.
“I do not know what world-class means, but he is a top, top player, that much is certain. He played at the World Cup and for the national team.”
Saka has the ability to rank among the world’s best forwards because he is an extremely talented player. The North Londoners will be hoping that he can carry on giving his best performances in the future, as he has already demonstrated his talent at the greatest level.
But Arsenal currently relies a lot on the young player, and they lack a suitable substitute for the Englishman. Therefore, I believe Saka’s playing time should be managed by the Gunners by signing a new right-winger next season.
