Bukayo Saka has won the PFA’s Young Player of the Year award for the 2022-23 season.
The 21 year old scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions for the Gunners in the last campaign – as well as scoring three goals for England in the mid-season World Cup in Qatar.
He garnered the most votes from fellow pros, beating off competition from teammate Gabriel Martinelli, as well as Erling Haaland, Jacob Ramsey, Evan Ferguson and Moises Caicedo.
He joins previous Arsenal winners of the prestigious award Tony Adams, Paul Merson, Nicolas Anelka, Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere, some decent company you have to say.
So far this season, Bukayo has been on the scoresheet twice, curling home a brilliant strike against Nottingham Forest in our 2-1 opening day win, as well as a penalty in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Fulham.
No doubt there’s plenty more to come, and it’s exciting to think about how much better he can get given his age.
Congratulations to him!
