With interests from all major Premier League clubs, the Bundesliga side face a tough task in keeping their prized assets this summer despite of £120million price tag. The England international scored 17 goals, provided 19 assists and has been one of the standout players in the Bundesliga this term. Manchester United are leading the race for the 19 year old.

But if they cannot keep hold of him – despite their huge asking price – Borussia Dortmund are ready to raid Arsenal for the 18-year-old winger-cum-full-back, as reported in Sunday Mirror, .

Bukayo Saka was handed his first-team debut under Unai Emery in the Europa League last season, and continued to hold his first-eleven place in all competitions under new manager Mikel Arteta, in absence of Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac due to injuries.

The England youth international lived upto the challenge in left-back position, despite growing up in a more advanced attacking position.

Saka has scored three goals and set up another eight across all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign.

Arteta is confident that Arsenal will hold of its prized asset with sbumper pay rise over current salary of £3,000-a-week at the Emirates.

But with talks still not proving conclusive, Dortmund may look to swoop ahead of Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, who have also shown interest.

The German outfit are also eyeing Birmingham ace Jude Bellingham for a summer switch, the same report adds. At just 16, the young midfielder has been drawing plenty of attention for his performances and could be priced as high as £50m.
