As we reported this week, Arsenal have scheduled talks with Bukayo Saka’s agent for the end of the season to discuss tying the player to the club long-term.

Saka’s current contract runs until 2024 with a 12-month option to extend already included.

Now, however, Arsenal are well aware of Saka’s growing reputation and want to do what they can to ensure that they keep him at the club for as long as possible.

The Daily Mail are reporting that part of that strategy could involve including a release clause in his contract, something that is common in other countries but not so much in England.

ARSENAL are under pressure to include a release clause in the new contract they are planning to offer Bukayo saka, with formal talks with his representatives due to start at the end of the season.  The 20-year-old england forward effectively has two years left on his deal, as Arsenal have the option of triggering an additional 12 months to the three-year contract he signed in 2020, but the club want to tie him down for considerably longer.  saka is happy at Arsenal and has a good relationship with manager Mikel Arteta, but he wants to play in the Champions league so may be reluctant to commit himself without an exit strategy.  As with most of the big english clubs, Arsenal do not ordinarily insert release clauses into their players’ contracts to ensure they only ever sell from a position of strength, but they may be forced to make an exception for saka.

Saka is said to be ‘in love’ with Arsenal and is in no desire to leave but that might not always be the case, especially if Arsenal’s ambitions on the pitch don’t seem to be aligning with his own.

Saka currently earns around £30kpw with Arsenal and it was reported in March that the club will increase that to around £125pw in any new deal.
