Can Saka emulate Henry to become an Arsenal legend?

Thierry Henry is widely regarded as Arsenal’s greatest player of all time.

Initially signed as a winger, he was transformed into a world-class striker under manager Arsene Wenger. 

Henry took the Premier League by storm after joining the club in 1999, winning the Golden Boot a record four times.

He was a constant threat to the opposition with his excellent technique, superb pace and amazing strength. 

The Frenchman scored 228 goals in 377 appearances across all competitions, becoming the club’s all-time top scorer.

He lifted two Premier League titles and two FA Cups during his stint at the Emirates Stadium, while he was also part of the Invincibles’ team that remained unbeaten in 2003/04.

Henry has become a role model for many young players, including the Gunners’ brightest academy star Bukayo Saka.

The 21-year-old was one of the key members of Mikel Arteta’s team that challenged Manchester City for the title this season. 

The right winger became Arsenal’s top scorer this season with 15 strikes in 48 appearances across all competitions. 

Since making his competitive debut in November 2018, he has bagged 38 goals and 40 assists in 179 games.

Arsenal have made an excellent decision by handing him a new long-term contract that will secure his future until 2027. 

If any one can match Henry’s record, it will most likely be Saka. The England international is highly rated for his finishing, passing and ability to hold onto the ball. 

He has achieved so much at such a young age and is expected to continue his rapid progress over the years.
