Bukayo Saka is delaying new contract talks with Arsenal.
According to The Daily Express, Saka is set to delay discussions over a new contract with Arsenal until the end of the season in order to focus on helping the club in their fight for a top-four finish.
The Gunners are eager to open talks with their prized asset over a fresh long-term contract but will have to wait before tying him down for the long-term.
Saka is halfway through his current deal, which expires in June 2024 and is thought to be worth around £35,000-a-week, so there is no sense of urgency for him to sign on the dotted line.
But the Gunners want to reward the England international for his fine form after becoming a key player for Mikel Arteta’s side.
