Opinion: Why Saka's new deal offers hope after Arsenal's historic title failure

Bukayo Saka's new deal demonstrates Arsenal's new face - and offers hope in the face of past failure. Since Arsene Wenger's departure, Arsenal has become something of a squabble club. In truth, they began to resemble one while Wenger was still in charge, but the Gunners have put those days behind them.

The Emirates side not only kept a seemingly unstoppable Manchester City side at bay, but they are also becoming sharper and more adventurous in the transfer market. This season's additions of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, as well as Martin Odegaard already highlighted this shift, and the recent contract extensions pound the point even more.

As the 2022-23 football season is coming to an end, Arsenal fans around the world are left feeling impressed. After finishing second in the Premier League standings and being eliminated from the Europa League, this season can only be described as a great one in a decade. However, amidst all the glory, Arsenal’s latest announcement brings a glimmer of hope.

Bukayo Saka has been an integral part of Arsenal’s first team this season, playing a crucial role in the Gunners' excellent campaign. His versatility, work ethic, and incredible talent have caught the attention of many, and it is no surprise that Arsenal have been eager to secure him for the future.

The Gunners have had a season to be proud of because no one expected this club to be able to launch a meaningful campaign. However, there is no denying that the inability to complete the task was historic, given the Gunners' advantage over the Manchester side.

However, this failure and the lessons learned from it can serve as the foundation for future success, and Bukayo Saka's new contract will go a long way towards making this success a reality.

The 21-year-old has been one of Arsenal's star performers over the last two seasons, contributing 13 goals and 11 assists in the Premier League this season.

The Gunners can now provide a solid project and a concrete pathway to the top of the game to an ambitious teenager like Saka, who may have previously departed for City or Chelsea.

In conclusion, Bukayo Saka’s new deal is a beacon of hope for Arsenal fans after a difficult season. It shows that the club is willing to invest in their young talent, and that they are committed to building a competitive team.
