Arsenal reporter, David Ornstein promoted the rumored deal on Twitter but mentioned that despite a deal in principle, nothing has been officially signed yet.
Arsenal are sweating on a new deal for Saka as his current deal expires in July 2024 and he could be tempted by offers from other top clubs.
If Saka’s head is turned by another club this summer, Arsenal will be forced to sell Saka for less than he’s worth or risk losing him in 2024.
That’s the worst-case scenario for the Gunners, but in principle they can put those fears to rest if they get an official signature on the deal.
