Juventus and Atletico Madrid are reportedly keeping an eye on Arsenal winger, Bukayo Saka.

Both European giants are expected to make a move for the English youngster this campaign, according to CalcioMercato.

The 20-year-old footballer has become a key member of Mikel Arteta’s side in the new season – having made five Premier League appearances and weighed in an assist.

However, the Gunners are not willing to let go of their star winger this term, as they’re opting to attach a hefty price tag to his name in order for him to stay at Emirates.

Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta reckons that there are some areas that he would like Saka to improve on moving forward. This comes after Arteta felt that the Euro 2020 finalist was struggling in the last minutes of their league clash against Burnley last weekend.

“Well, he hasn’t had a lot of preparation physically,” said the 39-year-old mentor.

“I think there are still things to improve there, but he is trying hard. He is another one who struggled in the final minutes.

“But it’s great that he’s able to suffer and somehow come through that and manage these difficulties and adversities during games where it is not really going for him.”

The Spanish football manager continued: “That is part of football. He had parts where he was brilliant and then he struggled and then he was brilliant again.

“That is better than being brilliant and then to struggle, struggle and struggle. So it’s part of his development and I’m really happy with him.”
