The 18-year-old was born in Ealing, London but has Nigerian parents so therefore can play for England or Nigeria.

Saka, who is currently playing at left-back for the Gunners, has represented the Three Lions at under-16, U17, U18 and U19 level.

But the recent visit of the Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick to England to  lure the player to the Super Eagles did not yield any dividend afterall.

Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has never showed any interest in the Arsenal player, even as he intensified bid to boost the squad ahead of 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

“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.”

Saka has also praised Unai Emery for giving him his debut before the Spanish boss was sacked by Arsenal.

The youngster said: “I have a lot of thanks to give him because he gave me so much confidence, he gave me my debut and he kept pushing me. I am grateful to him always.
