Former Super Eagles target Bukayo Saka has won a double award after winning Arsenal’s player of the month and Goal of the month for December.
The 19-year-old Nigerian descent has been one of the few shining lights in Arsenal’s underwhelming season so far and continued that form into the final month of 2020.
Saka beat off competition from runner-up Kieran Tierney, and 3rd-placed Alexandre Lacazette to emerge the winner after he got 70% of the vote, according to Arsenal’s website.
