This Liverpool side is hard to improve. The Reds have reached a footballing nirvana wherein there are no weak links in the side. With the first team in such a strong position, Michael Edwards and his recruitment team are looking to the future. According to The Mirror, Liverpool are tracking Bukayo Saka at Arsenal.

Saka has had a breakthrough season in North London.

The 18-year-old has played up and down the left flank this season but has been most impressive as left sided attacking midfielder.

Most recently the youngster came in for praise after bagging an impressive assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 4-0 dismantling of Newcastle United.

According to a report in The Mirror, the Gooners are looking to step up new contract negotiations with the teenager.

The paper have claimed that the prodigy has just 18 months left on his £3,000 a week deal.

The Mirror assert that with Liverpool interested in Bukayo Saka, Arsenal are looking to sign him up to a new contract immediately.

 

What RTK has to say

This could be a helluva buy.

If we manage to do enough behind the scenes then maybe he won’t be so keen to sign a new deal immediately.

If Saka doesn’t sign a new contract at Arsenal then we would be able to negotiate with him from next January.

Although we would end up having to pay compensation to the Gooners, it would be a much cheaper price to pay than whatever wonderful transfer fee they would conjure up.

If Liverpool sign Bukayo Saka then our future prospects would look even brighter – just get Gabriel Martinelli whilst you’re down there lads.
