Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka is open to leaving the club if they don’t achieve Champions League football next season.
Saka has been linked with a move away from the Emirates in the previous months with Liverpool and Manchester City all said to be interested in his services though nothing concrete has come from the said clubs.
Saka has enjoyed a rapid rise at Arsenal and has become a key figure in the starting XI under Mikel Arteta but with the player on a salary of around £35,000-a-week, the club is keen to tie him down to a longer deal on improved terms.
The Daily Mail reports that the player will factor in the likelihood of playing in the European competition when he makes his next contract decision with Arsenal currently among teams gunning for the top four spots.
The 20-year-old has his current deal with the Gunners expiring in 2024 and the club is keen on making him one of their highest earners with his next deal.
According to the reports, the youngster is conscious that compatriots Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham are becoming regulars on the Champions League stage, whilst he is yet to play in it.
Saka has scored seven times this term for the north London outfit, who are one of several clubs pushing for the top four.
