Arsenal midfielder Bukayo Saka was one of Arsenal’s best player before the season was halted due to the coronavirus.
The youngster was in blistering form for Mikel Arteta’s side having scored three goals and nine assists in 30 matches in all competitions.
His lively performances haven’t gone unnoticed as reports suggest that top managers are set to compete for his services in the summer transfer window.
Borussia Dortmund manager Lucio Favre and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are both linked with his signature.
However, the most surprising report linking the 18-year-old out of Emirates Stadium emanated from Sky Sports which revealed that Liverpool manager Jurgen KLopp is ready to lure the youngster to Anfield Stadium ahead of next season.
According to the British media outlet, the German tactician is willing to add the Saka to his team due to his versatility and pin-point crosses
However, it remains unknown if Arteta will sanction his departure considering his importance to the team.
The question is – should the player consider a move to the Merseyside club despite the rivalry between both clubs?
Joining the Reds provides him better chances of winning more laurels judging by Liverpool’s recent rise in fame and fortune.
Jurgen KLopp has obviously made the Merseyside club a force to reckon with in England and Europe after leading his men to last season’s Champions League glory.
They are also on course to win their first Premier League title in over 30 years as they currently occupy the first position with 85 points, 15 points ahead of second-place Manchester City.
Hence, Saka’s chances of winning his first title will receive huge boost if he dump arsenal for the Anfield outfit in the upcoming summer transaction period.
Unfortunately, switching from Arsenal to Liverpool poses huge pressure on his game-time as he will compete with more established players for a spot in the team’s starting line-up.
Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino appear untouchable in Klopp’s starting XI which means the 18-year-old might spend much time on the substitute bench.
Our final Verdict
As much as playing for Liverpool will boost the player’s profile, Saka is advised to stay under Mikel Arteta’s tutelage beyond this season in order to maintain his steady growth.
The manager knows his potentials, and I see no reason why he should be eager to leave the manager who has shown huge trust and faith in his ability.
