Man City 'really like' Bukayo Saka and have 'monitored' Arsenal star
| Last updated
Manchester City 'really like' Bukayo Saka and have 'monitored' the Arsenal superstar, according to stunning reports.
Saka has been in sensational form for club and country, having starred for England at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
He's shone for Arsenal this season as they mount a Premier League title challenge, scoring eight goals in all competitions this campaign.
The 21-year-old is under contract at the Emirates until 2024 after they triggered a clause in his deal to keep him at the club for an additional year.
But the Gunners are hoping to tie him down to a long-term contract as they look to hold onto one of their prized assets.
However, it appears Man City could test Arsenal's resolve, with reports claiming that the Blues 'really like' Saka and have 'monitored' him.
That's according to Ben Jacobs, who says the talented forward wants to stay in London, but wants terms that reflect his form and progression.

Pep Guardiola hailed Saka as 'one of the toughest opponents' in the Premier League as he praised Nathan Ake for keeping him quiet in their FA Cup win over Arsenal last Friday.
"What a season he's playing," the Man City boss said of Ake's duel with Saka.
"He controlled one of the toughest opponents in the Premier League - Saka is having an incredible moment. he's really good in duels in the box, set pieces, defending the far post, extra bonus.
"An exceptional lovely guy, last season when he wasn't playing, never complains once, always was really good."
Man City's reported interest of Saka comes after they are on the verge of offloading Joao Cancelo, who is set to sign for Bayern Munich.
Cancelo has barely featured for Man City since the season resumed following the World Cup, with a loan deal away from the club on the cards.
A deal includes an option to buy the Portuguese international for £61.5 million.
