Bukayo Saka has become the latest athlete to join the New Balance roster
Arsenal wonderkid Bukayo Saka has become the latest global star to sign a deal with sportswear giants New Balance.
The 19-year-old has enjoyed a real breakout season this year, racking up six goals and seven assists in 32 appearances thus far and establishing himself as one of the Gunners’ most important players in attack.
Saka has openly admitted that family has played a major role in his development thus far, and New Balance chose to honour that by enlisting the winger’s brother to take the photos on his first shoot as a New Balance athlete.

Saka has actually been wearing New Balance boots since earlier in the season, but now the partnership has been made official.
“It feels amazing to have a brand like New Balance behind me,” Saka said. “Working with the team and having my family involved has been a great experience so far, and it’s only just starting.
“It’s been a special season with Arsenal and England and I’m excited about what the future can bring for my game and now also with New Balance.”
