It is likely that Bukayo will be rewarded with a lucrative contract in the near future. So how much is his (expected) £125,000/week salary at Arsenal?
Arteta talks about Saka
According to The Sun, at the top of the list is midfielder Thomas Partey with an income of 200 thousand pounds per week, equivalent to 10.4 million pounds per season.
Meanwhile, Alexandre Lacazette’s contract will expire at the end of this season. The salary of 182,000 pounds/week of the French striker makes Arsenal afraid to sign again.
It cost Arsenal £72m to bring Nicolas Pepe to the Emirates Stadium, but his contributions were disproportionate. Last January, there were rumors that the Gunners wanted to get rid of the player who was receiving 140,000 pounds/week.
Rookie Ben White is proving that the £120,000/week salary Arsenal spends on him is worth every penny.
Left-back Kieran Tierney is enjoying a salary of 110,000 pounds/week. Tierney’s form has been quite good lately. He is considered to be the future captain of Arsenal.
Goalkeeper Bernd Leno is receiving 100,000 pounds/week. This is a pretty high level of income and Arsenal are looking to cut it because they already have a very good Aaron Ramsdale.
Granite Xhaka is enjoying the same salary as Leno. There are many rumors about Xhaka’s new destination in the summer. It is likely that he will join Jose Mourinho’s Roma.
Next is the position of Gabriel Martinelli, with 90,000 pounds/week.
Meanwhile, 79,000 pounds/week is the salary of rookie Martin Odegaard.
Currently, the salary of young star Bukayo Saka is only 30,000 pounds/week. However, BLD Arsenal has offered a new contract with Saka. Accordingly, if he renews, he will get a salary increase more than 4 times. Specifically, the English midfielder will receive 125,000 pounds/week. This is the 4th highest salary at Emirates Stadium.
