Bukayo Saka: Liverpool, Man United in hot chase for Arsenal teenage sensation

- Bukayo Saka has emerged a priority target for both Man United and Liverpool

- The 18-year-old broke into the Gunners senior team last season under Unai Emery

- Mikel Arteta seems to be enjoying the youngster's progress with the aim of improving more by the day

- Bayern Munich are also tracking the teenage sensation who might likely sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium

Premier League's most successful clubs Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka in the next transfer window.

The 18-year-old midfielder who also doubles as left-back for the north Londoners so far this season has scored twice in 21 appearances across competitions.

He broke into the Gunners' first-team under former boss Unai Emery and has continued his impressive run under new manager Mikel Arteta.

However, with the teenage sensation nearing the end of his £3000-a-week contract at the Emirates Stadium, the big guns are hoping they can tempt him to dump his club.

According to Metro quoting Daily Mail, both Liverpool and Man United are watching the player's negotiations to extend his stay at his present club.

The publication admits that the Gunners will offer the youngster a deal which will make him commit his future to the club.

Meanwhile, his new deal could see him earn big bucks like the other big players at the club, but they must be wary of Bayern Munich who are also keeping an eye on Saka.

Barely two months in charge of Arsenal Arteta has already showered encomiums on the teenager for his glaring contributions to the team.

When asked about life under the new boss, Saka said: "Mikel’s trying to bring back the philosophy, the Arsenal passing way,"

"Arteta said it would be better to score using fewer. If we can score in two passes, it’s better.

"We don’t need that many but obviously we need to move the ball and find the right spaces to attack and they’ve done it really well. I think the two goals were really nice."

The Spaniard became the Gunners' new boss in December after taking over from countryman Unai Emery who succeeded Arsene Wenger.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Arsenal are through to the next stage of this year's FA Cup championship following their 2-1 win over fellow Premier League side Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Two first-half goals from Bukayo Saka and Edward Nketiah were all the Gunners needed to claim their first win in their last four encounters.

The north Londoners needed just five minutes to find the back of the net after 18-year-old fired home an unstoppable shot from close range into the home team's net.
