Neville described Saka as a talented, hardworking young man. He just seems to want the ball all the time when you watch him play.

“Everything you would want in a young wide player, he works back and is tenacious. He is enthusiastic, he brings life to the crowd, and he sparks the crowd. He is a superb player who plays at a very high level.

Exciting Talent

Bukayo Saka, one of the top young players now playing, is crucial to Arsenal in our opinion.

Saka is one of the first names on Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s teamsheet when healthy and available.

The 21-year-old never hesitates to get the ball, scores goals, makes plays, take penalties, track back, and work hard.

Arsenal is a better team with Saka on the field because he is a gem of a football player.

The youngster has contributed four assists and three goals to Arsenal’s Premier League total through nine games this year.

This season, Saka will play a significant role for Arsenal as the Gunners pursue Premier League and UEFA Europa League success.
