Saka is arguably Arsenal's best player this season despite being only 18.

Bukayo Saka

is one of the most promising youngsters in the Premier League at the moment. After weeks of struggling,


finally had 3 victories in a row, and Saka, Smith-Rowe, and other youngsters made a huge impact on the games.

Daniel Ballard

, Arsenal’s academy player says that everyone in Arsenal knew for years that Saka is going to be a star.

“If Bukayo didn’t go right the way to the top, then there was no hope for any of us,”

the 21-year-old told Goal.

“He was an U16 playing in our U18s and he was consistently the best player. If there was one person who you knew would go and score you a goal or produce a bit of magic, it would be him.

“Even in the U23s, I remember that a lot of our hopes we’re put on him, or mine were anyway. He was the one person who I knew would score or win us the game.

“So, I’m just glad to see the club recognised that special talent because he’s such a nice, humble person. You want him to do really well because he’s such a nice guy and he works really hard.

“Everyone who knows him is extremely pleased for him.”
