Arsenal are set to quadruple Bukayo Saka’s salary to reflect his status as one of their most important players.
The 20-year-old England star currently receives a base salary of just 30 30,000 a week, making him one of the lowest paid players in the Emirates.
But now the club is preparing to offer him a new weekly deal worth around 125 125,000 to put an end to any speculation about a summer move.
Coach Mikel Arteta has made securing Saka’s long-term future his top priority and has told the club they should keep the current player of the year at all costs.
And that means a massive pay rise for the brilliant young winger, who is now one of the hottest properties in English football.
Saka representatives have already been informed that Arsenal are ready to sit down and terminate a new contract once the current season ends.
His current deal, which was signed just 20 months ago, has two more years to complete.
But Saka’s meteoric progress over the last two seasons has forced the club to re-evaluate its value and give him a deal that will put him in line with the other key stars of the club. h.ll / albeu.com
