The English forward, who burst onto the scene in recent years, looks set to take his game to the next level after enjoying a fruitful season for the Gunners last time out.
If you were to pose the question of ‘Who is you favourite player?’ on the terraces of the Emirates, you would probably hear Saka’s name in overwhelming response.
His 12 goals and seven assists in all competitions last season might sound a little underwhelming, but those numbers are only set to kick on in the coming months and years.
There is no doubt that Saka loves Arsenal with all his heart and it is that mantra that has endeared him to the fans of the north London side.
As excitement continues to mount around the Arteta project at Arsenal, you can be sure fans will be looking to Saka to lead the charge into what many hope will be a storied new era for the club.
You may be forgiven for thinking there is no way Gunners fans could love him more but, as more and more footage of the Amazon ‘All or Nothing’ documentary continues to surface, that simply isn’t the case.
One particular clip that has really captured the imagination of fans shows Saka enjoying a meal with teammate Emile Smith Rowe and, while chatting, he casually mentions what must have been a lifelong dream.
As he takes a bite of his lunch, Saka simply says:
“Imagine scoring in the north London derby… Best thing in the world bro.”
The clip then cuts to the moment Saka managed to do just that as he killed off the September 2021 clash between the two great rivals.
Epic – you get goosebumps just watching it.
Arsenal ran riot in that first half, rattling three past their hapless guests in one of the highlight days of Arteta’s time in charge so far.
They will be hoping for more of the same in the season to come as they look to finally find their way back to the promised land of the Champions League.
With Saka on point, fans could be in for a very happy time at the Emirates over the coming months.
