ARSENAL will renew talks with Bukayo Saka over a contract extension in the "next weeks and months", according to reports.
The Gunners winger was in brilliant form for England during the World Cup in Qatar.
Saka, 21, was named in L'Equipe's team of the tournament – with the French newspaper a notoriously harsh critic.
After a very short break, the Three Lions hero will soon return to action with his club.
He has 18 months remaining on his Arsenal contract, with the Gunners desperate to seal an extension before Saka enters his final year.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the North Londoners will resume talks in the coming months as we enter 2023.

Saka then bagged three times at the World Cup – scoring twice against Iran and once in the last 16 against Senegal.
