The versatile Arsenal youngster forced his way into the England senior squad for their games in October 2020, less than a year after breaking into the Gunners' first team.

Capable of playing as a left-back, wing-back or forward, Saka offers pace, tenacity and attacking ability and he quickly became a regular in the Emirates Stadium squad after his initial breakthrough as an 17-year-old debutant in a Europa League tie in late 2018.

It was in the 2019-20 campaign that he really solidified his spot in Mikel Arteta's squad though, when injuries opened up a spot in the team as a left-back for him.

The Ealing-born player had also been a regular for the Young Lions before his senior call, having picked up caps right from the MU16s, MU17s, MU19s and through to his MU21s debut in September 2020, just a month before his senior call-up arrived.
