The Daily Mail report that Arsenal have now submitted a formal offer to extend Bukayo Saka’s contract, worth at least double his current wages of £70,000 per week.

Saka hasn’t accepted the offer yet, and it remains to be seen how he’ll respond, but the Mail report that there’s confidence on Arsenal’s end that a deal can be struck.

Arsenal’s failure to finish in the top four last season reportedly didn’t help their case, but the Gunners are hoping that a big summer of business will help to convince the winger.

Fabrizio Romano recently reported for Caught Offside that talks over a contract extension have been ongoing between Arsenal and Saka since February.

Romano reports that Arsenal are Saka’s priority, he loves the club, and their negotiations have clearly now led to a formal offer.

The Mail previously wrote that Manchester City have identified Saka as a long-term target, though it’s reportedly highly unlikely Arsenal would consider selling this summer.

Speaking after Arsenal’s win over Everton in Baltimore on Saturday night, Arteta claimed both parties are on the same page in negotiations.

“We will try, and we both have the same intention,” Arteta said. “It’s a matter of time.”

After 43 appearances, 12 goals, and seven assists for Arsenal last season, Saka picked up the Premier League’s Academy Graduate award for 2021/22, and Arsenal’s Player of the Season award.
