A report claims that Arsenal are keen to tie Bukayo Saka down to a long-term deal amid interest from Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

Arsenal have reportedly accelerated talks with Bukayo Saka over a new contract after being alerted to interest from Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United.

Saka has thrived since Mikel Arteta took over at the Emirates Stadium in December, racking up his eighth assist of the campaign in Sunday's 4-0 win over Newcastle United.

The 18-year-old only has 16 months to run on his existing deal, however, and Arsenal are keen to tie him down for the long term as soon as possible.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool and Manchester United are closely monitoring the situation, while Bayern Munich may also make a move in the summer if the issue is not resolved.

Director of football operations Huss Fahmy is said to be leading the negotiations and Arsenal are confident Saka will pen fresh terms.
