BUKAYO SAKA should leave Arsenal if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League, claims Garth Crooks.

The wonderkid, 20, is having another stellar campaign in North London.

Saka grabbed his latest goal and assist as his side beat Watford 3-2 at Vicarage Road yesterday.

The win saw Mikel Arteta’s side climb into the top four, boosting their hopes of qualifying for Europe’s premier competition.

Should they fail to make it, however, former Tottenham ace Crooks thinks he should leave the Emirates.

He wrote in his BBC Team of the Week column: “If you’re a Tottenham fan it must be excruciating watching your local rivals continue to pick up points as they aim to secure a Champions League spot.

“Arsenal’s most recent performance against Watford was enough to win all three points but they still show signs of frailty at the back.

“The reason the Gunners are still flirting with a top-four place is due largely to the brilliance of Bukayo Saka.


“The England international has grown tremendously since he played in the European championships and seems to glide through games these days.

“If Arsenal can’t provide Champions League football for the youngster then I suggest he finds it somewhere else.

“Talent like this shouldn’t hang around.”

Arsenal are currently a point clear of Manchester United having played three games fewer, and six ahead of Tottenham.

Even United legend Roy Keane has now backed the Gunners for top four.

Saka has scored eight Prem goals and laid on five assists this term.
