The 18-year-old, who got through the club’s academy, has had a significant effect during the momentum season in the wake of making his presentation in the Europa League in 2018.
What’s more, Arteta, who applauded Arsenal’s academy for the work they have finished with Saka, has promised to get considerably more from the youth in the years ahead.
“He is the player that represents every value that this football club stands for,” Arteta said following Arsenal’s 4-0 win against Norwich.
“He’s come through the academy, so big credit to everyone who has been involved in the process of developing the player and the person that he is today.
“He’s come into my hands, our hands, really mature, really focused and really well developed in his knowledge about what he needs to do in the game, and it was really important for me to keep him and have big belief in him.
“From now on, I will be demanding more because he can give us more and more hopefully in the future.”
