​​Saka will not discuss new Arsenal contract amid Liverpool and Man City transfer links as he focuses on top four race

And he goes on to say that talks could open in the summer.

Saka has made 29 appearances for the Gunners this term, scoring eight goals and laying on four assists.

He has also won 14 England caps, scoring goals for his country against Austria and San Marino, as well as on two occasions against Andorra.

Should Arsenal fail to agree terms with Saka, former Gunner Paul Merson believes that he should be sold.

Of Saka and his pal Emile Smith Rowe, Merse told the Star: "They are top drawer and they are going to be vital to Arsenal finishing in the top four this season. But I think Arsenal should get them tied down now.

"They should be talking now about five year contracts. Get them signed, and if they don’t want to sign, then sell them in the summer."
