Unlike so many of his peers, there were no loans to gain experience at a struggling side short-priced in the Premier League relegation betting, or to a well-established Championship team. The Gunners knew they had a diamond. They knew he was ready.

And they were right too, because from that early introduction the lightning-quick winger has already gained a reputation as one of the biggest and brightest talents in Europe.

An outstanding 21 league goals and 22 assists, all before his 21st birthday is testament to that.

It is a steep trajectory that has led to international recognition and praise from far and wide. It has also brought enormous wealth for the young star. 

How much is Bukayo Saka worth?

At an age when most players are just starting to make a name for themselves, Saka has swiftly accrued an enviable wealth estimated to be just north of £2m. What’s more, it’s a figure set to dramatically rise in years to come. 

The large majority of this fortune has been earned via his club wages, with his current income believed to be £33,000 a week, plus bonuses. That’s a sharp hike from the £100 a week he was on just prior to his debut in 2018.

There are also commercial considerations to factor in, one example being a partnership struck in 2021 with New Balance that demands the superstar-in-the-making wears their boots on the pitch and promotes their clothing range off it. This deal alone will have easily topped seven figures. 

A bumper new contract with the Gunners meanwhile is set to rocket Saka into the game’s highest earning bracket.

With the Is reportedly dotted and the Ts crossed, the winger will shortly bring in £200,000 per week for an agreement that will keep him at the Emirates until 2027. 

Arsenal

Such a huge increase on his present earnings is a reflection of how highly he is prized in North London, and surely puts the bed recent transfer rumours that linked the flying winger with a move to Manchester City

Saka is dead-set on winning trophies with Arsenal and reaping the financial rewards in doing so, and perhaps that starts this season, as Mikel Arteta’s side defy the football odds and continue to challenge at the summit of the Premier League

The 21-year-old has been a pivotal presence in the Gunners’ recent rise, putting in a series of brilliant displays, as he has been an important player for them now for several seasons.

In both 2020/21 and 2021/22, Saka was voted Arsenal’s Player of the Year. 

England 

Whether the Three Lions go on to win the World Cup in Qatar or exit courtesy of a penalty shoot-out – as seems to be the tradition these days – in Bukayo Saka, they possess an exciting and impactful talent who offers a wealth of adventure and creativity in the attacking third. 

Speaking of pens, the player’s missed spot-kick in England’s recent Euro final against Italy could have seriously hindered his development.

Yet the manner in which he immediately bounced back is proof enough that not only is Saka destined for the very top, but he has the mentality to stay there.
