Lee Dixon has given Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka a huge compliment, comparing him to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
Saka helped Arsenal to an excellent 4-2 away win at Chelsea last night while the Gunners kept their hopes of Champions League qualification alive.
The 20-year-old’s skills are evident and even Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reportedly want him at Anfield [ESPN].
During Wednesday’s first half, Saka at times tormented his opponent with the same kind of style Salah often does with Premier League left-backs.
And Dixon, who was himself a full-back during his playing career, believes the England international is comparable to the Egyptian wizard.
He continued NBC sports: “When this boy runs with the ball at his feet, it reminds me a bit of Mo Salah. Just see how quickly he gets it off his feet and attacks the full-back. As soon as he gets in the pits, Alonso is in trouble. The cut-back is good but Nketiah can’t get enough of it.”
Arsenal must sign Saka for a new deal immediately.
He only earns £30,000 a week In North London and with clubs like Liverpool reportedly interested, time is of the essence.
Champions League qualification could keep Wolves out the door for now, but with the Hale End jewel only under contract until 2024, a fifth finish or lower this season could be the invite clubs like the Reds need to thrive to make their move.
Dixon is right; Saka is very reminiscent of Salah and there’s no way the Gunners can lose him.
