Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has sent team-mate Bukayo Saka a clear transfer message after the youngster dropped a major hint on his future at the club.
Saka has been one of Mikel Arteta ‘s star men since he was appointed in December 2019, and the 20-year-old is the perfect example of why academy players should be given a chance but had earlier claimed he wants to play in the Champions League which has raised speculations that he could leave if the North London outfit fail to make it.
The Ghanaian midfielder has therefore told Saka that the team has the mentality to make it to the top-four as they are now in winning form.
“He is one of the best young players in the world now. I think he is doing a great job. I hope he stays with us for a long time and does what he can, and tries to take this team far.
“I think we are mentally strong. We want to go game after game and this is what we are doing. I hope we continue with this form.”
The Gunners are now in the driving seat to finish in the Premier League’s top four as they are one point ahead of Manchester United in fifth and have three games in hand on them.
Saka had been loosely linked with a move to Liverpool, when he put contract talks on hold so that he can focus on finishing the season as strongly as possible.
However, Champions League football is now in their hands, and it’s given Arsenal a major boost as Saka “dreams” of playing in Europe’s top competition, as he told Sky Sports: “This is our dream for next year to be in the top four and playing Champions League football.
