Mikel Arteta could save Arsenal millions after finding his own Martin Odegaard alternative

With Nicolas Pepe starting to gain a more regular place on the right-hand side, and Gabriel Martinelli impressing off the left on Sunday, Arteta clearly has a number of exciting options available to him.

Smith Rowe’s versatility means he can play in a couple of roles across the attack, and Martinelli could end up being a No 9 in the long run.

Saka seems able to adapt to any position or scenario he is thrown into.

His thigh injury picked up late at the weekend is a worry, with him already being a key member of Arteta’s side despite not turning 20 until September.

But as long as he is fit, Arsenal have a top prospect who can be a star player for years to come.
