Arsenal could lose starlet Bukayo Saka if they fail to secure European football for next season, according to reports.

The 18-year-old is yet to sign a new contract with the club, with his current deal due to expire in just 18 months.

Saka is still on the £3000-a-week agreement he made with the club when signing his first professional contract in September 2018.

The Times are reporting that negotiations for a new deal are stuttering with Mikel Arteta’s side facing the prospect of a year out of European competition.

Promising winger Saka wants to carry on his rapid rate of development by continuing to play against Europe’s biggest clubs.

Arsenal sit in 10th place in the Premier League table with 13 league games to go, four points away from Manchester United who occupy the final Europa League spot.

The north London club are even farther away from Champions League qualification, seven points adrift from fourth-placed side Chelsea.

However, due to Manchester City’s two-year European ban, the team that finishes fifth may gain a route into Europe’s elite competition. Saka is reportedly attracting interest from rivals Manchester United and Liverpool due to his impressive form for the Gunners this season.

The England Under-19’s international has more assists than any other Premier League teenager, despite playing out of position at left-back.
