Arsenal have taken up their options to extend Bukayo Saka’s and William Saliba’s contracts by a further 12 months to 2024.

Both players had been approaching the final six months of their respective deals but Arsenal were always prepared to activate their extension clauses if they failed to wrap up new contracts before the turn of the year. Finalising longer-term deals for the 21-year-old England winger and the 21-year-old French defender remain a priority.

Negotiations remain on with the representatives of both players, with Arsenal confirming their willingness to make the Saka their highest earner to convince him to put pen to paper.

Unfortunately, it is understood Saliba’s representatives have rejected Arsenal’s latest offer, believing the proposal on the table does not offer a fair reflection of the Frenchman’s status as one of the top young defenders currently in the Premier League.

Arsenal have also triggered a contract extension for young midfielder Charlie Patino, tying him down to the club until 2025, and talks are also ongoing with the representatives of Arsenal and Brazil forward Gabriel Martinelli, whose contract also expires at the end of this season.
