Arsenal comfortably dispatched Bournemouth 2-1 in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Monday. A goal and an assist from Bukayo Saka sealed the game for the Gunners and the teenager was rightly named as the man of the match.
Mikel Arteta rested several key players including Alex Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Lucas Torreira for the game. The youngsters who featured made everyone proud and Gunners fans should be really optimistic about the future.
Saka, in particular, had an outstanding game. The teenager played out of position yet again but never looked out of place. A superstar attacker joined Arsenal fans on twitter to heap praise on the 18-year-old.
Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho took to Twitter to hail Saka’s performance. Arsenal fans, predictably, couldn’t resist the temptation of urging the Englishman to make the switch to the Emirates.
Sancho, still only 19, has become a star in Germany. The former Manchester City man has scored 14 goals and has provided 15 assists in all competitions this season.
The Dortmund winger is reportedly valued at about £100 million (The Mirror) which is well beyond Arsenal’s reach. A deal is as unlikely as it can be but that hasn’t stopped Arsenal fans from dreaming about signing him.
Here are a few replies from Arsenal fans to Sancho’s tweet:
