Saka suffered an Achilles tendon problem at the end of last season.

The 22-year-old’s form slump came at the worst possible time as the Gunners were fighting for the Premier League title.

Saka scored twice in the Gunner’s last 10 games to give Manchester City a lead and secure the league title.

Arteta hoped a summer without competitive football would heal the winger’s injury, but reports suggest otherwise.

According to Daily MailSaka continues to struggle with a hamstring problem, making his injury a doubt ahead of Sunday’s game against Everton.

The winger was only named as a substitute for England’s 3-1 win over Scotland on Tuesday.

This was a huge relief for Arsenal boss Arteta as he is worried about the star’s workload.

The Spaniard used Saka in 48 games, including every single Premier League game last season.


And Saka has another busy year ahead, with England taking part in Euro 2024 after qualifying matches take place in October and November.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have an increased workload as they return to European football this season.

Saka has looked good so far this season, scoring two goals in four games.

However, there will be concerns about his long-term fitness.
