Arsenal will be hoping to finish their season on a high by beating Wolves on Sunday. 

The Gunners had topped the Premier League table for more than 200 days before being leapfrogged by Manchester City last month, and the Citizens were crowned champions when Arsenal lost to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side have now won three consecutive titles and lifted the trophy five times in the past six seasons, while Arsenal will have to settle for second place this term.

Mikel Arteta’s side will compete in the Champions League for the first time since the 2016/17 campaign, and it appears that the north London outfit are already planning ahead for next term.

According to Fabrizio Romano, winger Bukayo Saka has signed a new contract with Arsenal.

The 21-year-old has been in sensational form so far this season, scoring 14 goals and providing 11 assists in 47 appearances across all competitions.

Saka has reportedly agreed to commit his long-term future to Arsenal

The England international’s current deal is set to run until 2024, but Romano claims that he has now agreed to extend his contract with the club.

Saka, a product of Arsenal’s academy, made his senior debut for the club in January 2019 and has now made more than 175 appearances for the club.

He has scored 37 goals and provided 40 assists in that time, and has also established himself as a regular for England at international level.

An agreement has reportedly been in place between Saka and the club since February, but the player has now signed the new deal.

Romano claims that official confirmation of Saka’s contract extension will be expected very soon, and the news is sure to be welcomed by the club’s supporters.

Earlier this season fellow attacker Gabriel Martinelli signed a new contract with the club, and it appears that Saka has now followed suit.

A number of young stars have impressed for Arteta’s side this term, helping the Gunners to their highest Premier League finish since the 2015/16 campaign when they were runners-up behind surprise winners Leicester City.
