Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, explains the ‘great news’ regarding Liverpool’s interest in Bukayo Saka.

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Bukayo Saka, and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has expressed his delight at the news.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta describes Bukayo Saka’s interest as “great news.”

Saka is said to be a target for Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

So far, the England international has had a fantastic season with Arsenal.

Saka has six Premier League goals and four assists so far this season.

The 20-year-old has not let the disappointment of missing a penalty shootout for England in the Euro 2020 final affect his on-field performances.

Saka’s current Arsenal contract is set to expire in two and a half years.

At his press conference on Friday, Arteta was asked about rumors linking clubs with the winger.

And he insisted that it was only a good thing because it demonstrated how well the player is doing.

“I think that’s great news when there’s a lot of talk and people willing to take your players,” Arteta said.

“They should be proud because it means they’re doing a fantastic job.”

Last month, the Transfer Window podcast revealed Liverpool’s interest in Saka.

Saka has also been linked with a move to Anfield in the future.

“We reported on The Transfer Window Podcast that Liverpool is looking to the future in terms of selling at least two of their attacking players,” said podcast co-host Ian McGarry.

“Saka is a player who fits in well with Liverpool’s style of play.

“Liverpool would provide him with the opportunity to play and compete at the highest level.”

“And I’m told he and his representatives are very interested in that.”

When asked if the Hale End graduate is now considered ‘world class,’ Arteta said yes.

The Spanish manager, on the other hand, insisted that such labels were unnecessary.

“I despise putting labels on things,” Arteta explained.

“I’m very pleased with Bukayo and what he’s doing, as well as how he’s grown and the role he plays on the team.

“Most importantly, with the impact he can have.”
