Man City and Liverpool ready to pounce for Bukayo Saka transfer with Arsenal desperate to extend England star's contract

MANCHESTER CITY and Liverpool are reportedly eyeing Arsenal star Bukayo Saka as a future transfer target.

Pep Guardiola's side have increased their interest in the winger just when Arsenal were beginning to lay out plans to renew Saka's contract.

City have other transfer priorities this summer but are now monitoring the England star's situation at Arsenal, report the Daily Mail.

But a move this summer remains unlikely with Saka's contract running for another two years.

The Gunners will attempt to extend his stay at the Emirates but the 20-year-old is keen to experience Champions League football.

And it remains to be seen whether Arsenal can persuade Saka to stay amid interest from City and Liverpool.

After landing Erling Haaland the Citizens are keen to recruit a replacement for Fernandinho.

Leeds star Kalvin Phillips has been tipped to move to the Etihad in a potential £50million switch.

And if City are to strengthen other areas of the squad they will reportedly have to sell first, with the likes of Nathan Ake and Gabriel Jesus linked with transfers.

Oleksandr Zinchenko could also make a summer move with Arsenal stepping up their interest in the Ukrainian.

They face competition for his signature from West Ham but Zinchenko could be keen on Arsenal having worked with Arteta previously at City.
