Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said the club will ‘do the right thing’ in ensuring the future of their young players, including starlet Bukayo Saka.
The 18-year-old’s contract has been the subject of speculation given his current deal is due to expire in the summer of 2021.
Saka is reportedly earning around £3,000-per-week, prompting fellow Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester to monitor his situation, according to the Daily Mail.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Newcastle, Arteta said: ‘I’m really happy with how they [the young players] are developing.
‘Part of their development is to improve their contract and tie them to the club but I have to follow a natural process.’
