Despite Mikel Arteta’s side finished eighth in the Premier League and missed out on European football, Bukayo Saka has continued to enhance his reputation with his excellent performances throughout last campaign.
The 19-year-old, who made his debut for Arsenal back in November 2018 in the Europa League match against Vorskla Poltava, was Gunners’ standout performer during an otherwise disappointing campaign.
Saka, who switching between left back, central midfield and attacking roles, used his trickery to good effect and also delivered some dangerous crosses.
The Hale End graduate product scored seven goals and contributed 10 assists in 46 appearances across all competitions last season and stellar performances earned him a place in England’s European Championships squad.
He also named Arsenal’s Player of the Season for 2020/21 campaign with 51 per cent of the vote over Nicolas Pepe and Kieran Tierney, who secured second and third position respectively.
Saka, who scored on his debut for the Three Lions last week during a 1-0 win against Austria, was nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, which finally won by City starlet Phil Folden.
