Arsenal's rising star Bukayo Saka has been handed the jersey no.7 as the club unveiled their new home kit for the upcoming 2020/2021 season.

The England born Nigerian international has been a sensation since he broke into the first team. Saka has been a utility player for Arsenal because of his versatility playing in different positions.

He was first introduced as a left-winger in a Europa League match against Vorskla Poltava last season in the 68th minutes of the game subbing off former arsenal midfield Aaron Ramsey who is now plying his trade at Juventus.

After showing his ability in the game against Vorskla Poltava, he was handed a full debut on 13 December 2018 at the Emirate Stadium in another Europa League match against Quarabag.

The 19-year-old Nigerian player was handed his first Premier League debut at Emirate in a 3-2 win against Aston Villa.

After a lot of injuries at the club which saw the club's left-back Sead Kolašinac and Arsenal new signing Kieran Tierney sidelined for a long time, Saka was called up to stand in as a left-back by Freddie Ljungberg.

He has shown well ever since then recording 4 assists in the league, the third-best in the league from a youngster, just below Kevin Debruyne of Manchester City and Liverpool's Alexander-Arnold.

Arsenal new head coach Mikel Arteta has spoken about his talent saying. "I am really pleased with the way he [Saka] has developed. And I’m really pleased with the way he’s handling these situations because there’s a lot of highlight on him at the moment, but he’s still really humble.

‘He’s still as keen to meet with my assistant, willing to improve. He’s a great kid and he makes big decisions in the final third. ‘He’s not someone who hides. He’s got the vision and the ability to execute when the spaces are really tight. That’s a gift.’

Arsenal's new home kit looks gorgeous and the club has said that dark shades of red which it has used in time immemorial are legendary to the club and the Arsenal DNA.

The team will also wear the new shirt for the Heads Up FA Cup final at Wembley on August 1, when we’ll be aiming to break our own record by lifting the trophy for the 14th time."
