"But, remarkably, he is still not in the first-team dressing room at Arsenal's London Colney training ground".
British tabloid Mirror reported Arsenal is ready to offer the 18-year-old a new contract, to fend off interest from bigger teams in the premier league.
His first goal for the north Londoners came when they defeated Eintracht Frankfurt in an Europa League clash.
Saka could potentially be the future of this club and with many other promising youngsters coming through the ranks, integrating the academy and the first-team squad could be a masterstroke by the club.
The youngster made his remarks about Emery when he was asked about how helpful Ljungberg has been to his own development at the club.
"Sometimes I use Freddie to do that conversation with individual players".
"Freddie's information, he's been a player at this level before, and it's vital for me because I play in the same position as me and he's been a big part in my progress". "I've always said that in tournaments that I played in, we always pinned our hopes on one player or two players".
The 18-year-old further stated that he is not moved by the lack of invitation, but insisted: "It's good to have your mates around you to push you and to pick you up when you're down".
As one of the club's future stars, is it time for Arsenal to change this rule?
"I have conversations with players, particularly individually with Bukayo Saka".
