Gabriel Martinelli makes Bukayo Saka contract prediction: ‘Arsenal is his home’
Gabriel Martinelli is hopeful Bukayo Saka will follow in his footsteps and sign a new contract at Arsenal.
Martinelli penned a new deal with the Gunners back in February, extending his stay at the club until 2027.
Arsenal are also working to tie down Saka to a new contract, with the winger’s present deal due to expire in 2024.
The Gunners are understood to have a broad agreement in place with Saka and are working on finalising the terms of a new contract.
“I will be happy because he is a very, very good player, one of the best young players in the world,” said Martinelli, when asked about the prospect of Saka staying.
“He is at his house, you know. Arsenal is his home and for sure he is happy. And we will be happy as well if he stays and signs a new deal.
“We always have some jokes - me, him and [William] Saliba. But it’s up to him. But he will stay for sure. He loves the club.”
