Bukayo Saka continues to lay his claim to being one of the most promising young talents in Europe. The Arsenal man has been shining brightly for the North London club this season and has stepped up at times when their veteran players are finding it difficult to hit form.
Saka has scored 6 goals and has 4 assists in 21 appearances for Arsenal in the Premier League this season. He leads the assists chart for the Gunners and only Emile Smith Rowe has scored more goals than Saka.
He also averages the highest average match rating at 6.99 across the entire squad according to whoscored.com.
The Arsenal man has showed no signs that the events of Euro 2021 have affected his game and has emerged as a national icon in England which was proved once again on Tuesday night.
During the 42nd Annual Brit Awards held at the O2 Arena in London, Saka made an appearance along with Arsenal legend Ian Wright on stage.
The Arsenal duo presented the award for the Best Hip-Hop/Rap/Grime Act won by Santan Dave. They also grabbed eyes at the red carpet for the event with stylish outfits fancied by a lot of supporters. Saka sported an all-black outfit paired with white designer shoes.
On or off the pitch, it seems Saka’s popularity is headed only one way.
