Arsenal's Most Expensive Player Could Halt Saka's Progress At The EmiratesPublished: August 14, 2019
Arsenal academy product Bukayo Saka is certainly going to play a role in the Gunners first team this season following his exploits in last month's pre-season matches.
The 17-year-old winger is currently one the most highly-rated Hale End academy stars and his stocks continue to rise among the Gunners fans.
After the departure of Alex Iwobi from the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal fans tipped the youngster to feature more prominently under Unai Emery this campaign.
However, the addition of Ivory Coast international Nicolas Pépé could turn out to be a stumbling block to Saka's growing reputation at Arsenal.
Pepe, 22, completed his record-breaking £72m move to the Gunners from Lille last month and he's expected to be one of the team's greatest attacking threat alongside Aubameyang and Lacazette .
What Pepe's presence at Emirates Stadium means to the youngster's mission of becoming a regular figure in Emery's starting line-up is that the youngster is now limited to being a back up to the goalscoring Ivorian winger.
