Bukayo Saka has been a key figure in Arsenal’s recent resurgence, with Mikel Arteta’s team currently in fourth place in the Premier League.

Parlor, who won three Premier League titles with Arsenal through his time, however, feels Saka would attract the attention of Guardiola and City.

‘I think the young team [at Arsenal] has great potential to develop and improve, ‘told Parlor talkSPORT.

‘Do you know what the hardest part will be? It’s about retaining the players.

‘You are aware [what has occurred] over the years. Saka must be on every club’s radar all day, and a top team like Manchester City will look at him and think to themselves, “He will help us.”

‘Smith Rowe, I understand he did not start, but he has come a long way. Odegaard seems to be a different player now, as if he is having a great time playing football.

‘If you look at it, each player’s age group is extremely, very healthy.’ Tierney is only 24, Gabriel is still in his early twenties, Ben White is still in his twenties, Tomiyasu at right back is still in his twenties and Ramsdale is also still in his twenties.

They can get closer to clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool if they stick together and improve together, but they are still far away at the moment. ‘
