GARETH SOUTHGATE thinks Bukayo Saka would be the perfect son-in-law.
Arsenal star Saka, 20, was abhorrently mauled after missing from the penalty spot in the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
But he’s a popular character in the England squad.
And Southgate was full of praise for the Gunners’ talent, saying: “He’s a fabulous kid.
“If your daughter brings Bukayo home, you would be more than happy!
“His family have been brilliant with him. Here he felt the love of the players and staff immediately after the EM.
“That will have helped him immediately afterwards.
“He’s a fantastic talent.”
Southgate, who has a son and daughter, continued: “He’s someone who might be less appreciated.
“His profile isn’t quite the same as some of our other attacking players.

“He just goes about his work calmly.
“But I think you can see the consistency in his performances and the quality of his game.”
Saka has featured in both Nations League games and could be on the bench against Italy today.
England lost their tournament opener in Hungary 1-0 before drawing 1-1 with Germany.
The Three Lions host Italy on Saturday before ending their four-game window at home against Hungary on Tuesday.
