Arsenal fans have been telling William Saliba to ‘sign da ting’ for months now and clearly so was Bukayo Saka after his reaction on William Saliba’s instagram post this afternoon.
Bukayo Saka also signed a new Arsenal contract only a couple of months ago with the club tying down many of their young talents to new long-term contracts ahead of next season.
Aaron Ramsdale, Gabriel, Gabriel Martinelli and Reiss Nelson are the other players to having signed a contract extension recently at Arsenal with Ben White and Martin Odegaard set to follow shortly.
