Arsenal are trying to tie down their teenage wide man Bukayo Saka on a long-term deal and it’s easy to see why.

Last season, former England striker and BT Sport pundit Michael Owen compared him to Cristiano Ronaldo.

 Londoner Bukayo Saka now has two goals and five assists in five Europa League games for Arsenal

But after being converted from a winger to a left back, he now seems more like ex-Arsenal Invincible Ashley Cole.

He’s earning £3,000 a week, small change for many top footballers.

And although it should cost less than the £55,000-a-week offer that famously caused Cole to head for Chelsea, it might still take a Saka-full of money for Arsenal to keep him.

Because Saka’s ’ayo-catching performances must be alerting a host of clubs to his potential.

And it’s easy to see why.

With two goals and, thanks to Thursday's 1-0 win against Olympiakos, FIVE assists in five Europa League games, Saka has taken the continent’s secondary club competition by storm.

But even in the tougher surroundings of the Premier League, Saka’s more than made his mark.

Only two players under the age of 20 have started more than two Premier League games this season, and they’re both at Arsenal.

This tells us Saka’s definitely at the right place for his development: because with him, Gabriel Martinelli, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson Arsenal have given their Under-21s more game time than any other Premier League club has.

And Saka’s the one Mikel Arteta has turned to the most, more even than Brazilian teen sensation Gabriel Martinelli, who has six starts to his name.

Saka has almost twice as many, making him among the most used of all players under the age of 22.

In fact, he’s one of only six under-21s with more than 1,000 minutes under his belt this season.

 Bukayo Saka was one of Arsenals top performers in the 1-0 win at Olympiakos, teeing up the late winner for Alexandre Lacazette
