The Red Devils are on the “cusp” of signing the £100 million transfer of Jadon Sancho.
According to Daily Mirror, Borussia Dortmund are going to sell the 20-year-old to Manchester United. The Gunners youngster Bukayo Saka is also on the eye of Dortmund as a replacement.
Bukayo Saka is one of the most exciting young talents in the Premier League and across Europe. His natural position is an attacking midfield player or a winger.
The 18-year-old will be an ideal signing to replace Sancho. Arsenal fans will hope the young talent to stay at the Emirates. If Jadon Sancho leaves Dortmund, Saka will be an ideal replacement for the Bundesliga side.
The teenager may look at Sancho’s impressive development in the shirts of Dortmund. The 18-year-old can see the Bundesliga club as an ideal club for his development, he can improve and grow potential in the years to come.
The Gunners have lost their best players to big clubs across Europe. They are already weak in the position to keep Saka at Emirates. The young talent is already edging towards his final year of contract with Arsenal.
Bukayo Saka to Leave Arsenal?
