The former Arsenal midfielder Tony Adams feels that Lionel Messi and Bukayo Saka are currently the two best players in the world, and he advises Mikel Arteta to create his side around the England star in order to win Europe.
According to former Gunners captain Tony Adams, Arsenal and England star Bukayo Saka is the best player in the world except World Cup champion Lionel Messi.
With 22 goals in 28 league games this season, Saka has become Mikel Arteta’s go-to player at the Emirates. Saka is vying for Arsenal’s first league championship in 20 years and is also making waves internationally.
The 21-year-old winger, who is continuing to excel under England coach Gareth Southgate, scored an incredible goal against Ukraine on Sunday.
Adams, a former player for Arsenal, can only think of one player in the current state of world football who is superior to Saka, who has long been recognized as one of the all-time greats.
The only guy I can think of that now plays in the world of football and scored goals as well as assists them is Lionel Messi, Adams contributed to The Sun.
Arsenal is in first place because of Bukayo, who is playing brilliantly.
Marcus Rashford is having a tremendous season for Manchester United, and Erling Haaland may be scoring hundreds of goals for Manchester City.
But Bukayo, who was England’s finest player during the World Cup and has been the best overall, is without a doubt the Footballer of the Year.
The 56-year-old, who is already looking ahead to the summer, has pushed his former team to sign Saka to a long-term contract. Manchester City is one of the major European clubs that has already showed interest in the starlet.
Adams thinks the young player will stay at the club in the long run because to Arsenal’s pro-active transfer policy.
The Gunners assaulted the transfer window last summer, enticing crucial players like Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City. If they want to compete in the Champions League next season, they will almost surely need to do the same thing.
Adams continued, “Hopefully, they’ll soon bind Bukayo to a substantial new contract, so I can stop worrying.”
He is an Arsenal supporter from London who attended the academy and possesses the He has the club in his blood like I do.
The Gunners management may be very certain that he won’t ever leave them, but they shouldn’t ever take his allegiance for granted.
Now Mikel Arteta and the board must use a major summer transfer push to persuade Bukayo to stay.
“This Arsenal team will face whole new challenges when competing in the Champions League next year.”
And the present team will find it extremely challenging to compete at that level while simultaneously making a run for the championship.
We all witnessed what occurred the previous week in the Europa League when Mikel rested a few of his big guns. Sporting Lisbon outplayed the backup players, who were uniformly subpar.
