Teenage Winger Saka Trains With Arsenal First Team Pre-BarcelonaPublished: August 02, 2019
Teenage Nigerian winger Bukayo Saka was spotted training with Arsenal first team on Friday ahead of their final pre-season game against Barcelona, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
Manager Unai Emery has given Saka the chance to break into the Gunners first team in the forthcoming campaign after naming him on the roster for pre-season games in the United States last month.
The 17-year-old featured in friendlies against Colorado Rapids, Bayern Munich, Fiorentina and Real Madrid and netted his first goal for the first team against the Major League Soccer side.
Saka was not named on the rosters for the recent friendlies against French clubs Olympique Lyonnais and Angers SCO.
He commanded a lot of attention last season after he became the youngest player of Nigerian descent to feature in the Europa League, aged 17 years, 2 months and 24 days.
Saka is being touted as a future Nigeria international but England may well be in the driving seat for his services.
