Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka has said neither England or Nigeria has approached him on his international career but he is open to playing for either country.

“I am always thinking about it but I haven’t made a decision yet,” Saka told BBC Sport.

“No-one has been in touch but when I make a decision you will find out.”

Born Nigerian parents, Saka is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England whom he has represented at youth level.

The 18-year-old Arsenal youth academy graduate said he is not in a rush to decide on his international allegiance.

The ongoing 2019/2020 season has proven to Saka’s breakthrough season, having made 15 appearances for the Gunners in the Europa Cup, Premier League and the English League Cup.

In January 2019, Saka became the first footballer born in 2001 to play in a Premier League match (Arsenal’s 4 – 1 win over Fulham) while he was 17.

Saka has so far been touted as one of the great home-grown talents of the Premier League similarly as Chelsea duo – Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori – who already chose the Three Lions of England over Nigeria.
