Arsenal easily defeated Everton, winning 5-1. Although the victory was less significant because it did not propel Arsenal to the top of the table, it is worth noting that it helped Arsenal finish fifth, five positions higher than where they ended the 2020/21 season.
Arteta will be looking to secure the futures of his key players with new contracts now that the season is over.
Arsenal's poster boy is one in need of a new, improved contract. But, by now, you're probably wondering, "Who is Arsenal's poster boy?" Bukayo Saka, of course. There's no denying that the Englishman is the lifeblood of Arteta's team, having finished the season as Arsenal's top scorer with 11 goals. However, Saka's Arsenal contract is about to expire.
Saka has been linked with a move away from Arsenal to a club that guarantees him trophies and regular participation in the Champions League, but other reports suggest he is keen to stay at the Emirates.
According to reports, despite staying at Arsenal, he has negotiated an escape clause in his new contract. This escape root is his decision to include an exit clause in his new contract. Arsenal have not been known to have that in their contracts but would be willing to include it in Saka's new contract. It is worth noting that Saka may remain at Arsenal, though he may leave at any time if his release clause is activated. (Mirror)
