    A Legend in the Making

    Former Arsenal icon Nigel Winterburn has said that Bukayo Saka is becoming a legend at the Emirates.

    The 21-year-old is one of the club's most important players and goes from strength to strength on a weekly basis.

    And ex-defender Winterburn told Paddy Power: "Bukayo Saka is going in the right direction to earn legendary status at Arsenal. I’m a big fan of this man because I've been watching his development for a long time.

    "A few years ago, I spoke to Freddie Ljungberg when Saka was coming into the U23 team, and in his first game, he was easily the best player on the pitch.

    "What is important when you watch him is that he plays with a smile on his face. He’s a young man, enjoying his football and is playing well."
