Our view: Liverpool should prioritise signing Bukayo Saka

Liverpool currently boast a squad that are capable of dominating the Premier League for the next few seasons. The Reds have their first team all signed up to long term contracts meaning the playing staff won’t need an overhaul any time soon, we should look to the future instead. Liverpool should prioritise signing Bukayo Saka from Arsenal.

Saka has burst onto the scene in North London this season.

The 18-year-old left sided player has made 11 starts in the league and appeared from the bench on six occasions.

His most recent substitute appearance came against Everton at the weekend. He impressed against the Toffees, swinging in a delicious cross for Eddie Nketiah and proving a handful for Djibril Sidibe throughout.

All told he has three assists in the Premier League this season. He has been far more prolific in the Europa League, netting two goals and bagging five assists in five games.

The youngster couldn’t fit Liverpool’s transfer model more perfectly.

He is just 18-years-old, he is versatile and he has a good head on his shoulders – we saw a snapshot of his determined mentality when he was crunched by the much bigger and stronger Djibril Sidibe: whilst the Arsenal fans appealed for a pen, Saka jumped up and chased back for possession.

The Mirror reported last week that Liverpool are tracking Bukayo Saka. We believe he should be a summer priority.

With the youngster only having 18 months left on his deal he wouldn’t cost a tremendous amount. If he tells the club he wants to leave then they would be forced to sell or risk losing him on a free in a season’s time.

This is a realistic move and one which we feel would serve us well in the future.
