Liverpool have been linked with a swoop for Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka – but the Gunners are reportedly planning to rebuff all interest in the left-back.
Saka has impressed after being fast-tracked into the Arsenal team this season after leapfrogging Sead Kolasinac and the injured Kieran Tierney.
The 18-year-old, who can play anywhere down the left sie of the pitch, has made 12 Premier League starts among 29 appearances in total this season, and has also chipped in with nine assists.
But he is about to enter the final year of his contract at the Emirates, and his eye-catching form has alerted Liverpool, according to Football Insider.
However, the publication reports that Arsenal are trying to tie him down to a new five-year deal – and plan to hold him to his current contract even if he does not commit beyond next season.
