Arsenal defender may have made surprise on Arsenal shirt number conclusion amid new home kit ‘leak’

Keeping the club’s best players is equally as essential as bringing in new talent, but it is often taken for granted. During the period of financial austerity under Arsene Wenger, a large number of Arsenal’s elite players departed, so the club should be more aware of this than most.

With the news that Bukayo Saka has inked a new contract, Arsenal has secured the future of arguably their most important player for the foreseeable future. However, this is not the end of Arsenal’s pursuit of additional youthful talent.

Saka has recently inked a new contract, joining the likes of Aaron Ramsdale, Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Magalhes. football.london examines where Arsenal stand with the next four players in line as the Gunners attempt to secure the futures of their mainstays.

Ben White

Ben White has had two fruitful seasons with the club since joining from Brighton in 2021, just like fellow summer signing Aaron Ramsdale. As a result of his performance, the goalkeeper received a contract extension with enhanced terms.

In his first season with the team, White excelled as a central defender. Rather than being supplanted by William Saliba during the 2022/23 title-contending season, White moved to the right side of the defense to partner with Saliba. He has disproved his critics and demonstrated his value to the club.

In light of this, similar to the aforementioned Ramsdale, he will almost certainly receive a contract extension commensurate with his two productive years. The Times reports that White’s current contract, which expires in 2026, is on the roster of players whose contracts may be up for renewal.

Martin Odegaard

The club record for non-penalty goals scored by a midfielder could be broken by the Norwegian if he scores his 16th goal of the season against Wolves in the final game of the season.

As team captain, he has earned praise not only for his goal-scoring, but also for his creativity and leadership.

According to football.london, the club has worked behind the scenes to prepare for contract negotiations. Odegaard is content at the club, and it is hoped that a contract extension will be obtained that reflects his importance to the team – his current contract expires in 2025.

Reiss Nelson

Arsenal has submitted a third contract offer to the graduate of Hale End, who has already rejected two previous offers. The club committed to a one-year extension with the winger prior to his loan to Feyenoord last season, but Nelson wants assurances about his future role in the team.

The winger has demonstrated great promise for the team, and Mikel Arteta is so impressed that he is making a last-ditch effort to retain him at the club. Nelson has proposals from English and international clubs.London is aware of the possibility of a free transfer, but Arsenal now hopes he will remain.

William Saliba

The member of the team who remains in the air the longest. With one year remaining on his contract after Arsenal activated the one-year option, there has been no progress in negotiations despite football.london’s understanding that the club remains confident that the player will renew.

Saliba has been an integral part of the team’s significant development this season, and Arsenal must re-sign the center-back if they wish to continue on the path to greater success. Replacing a player of his caliber will be extremely costly, and his salary demands are likely to reflect this.
