Bukayo Saka is in line to earn a new contract at Arsenal, but right now, the Englishman is very low on the wage table at the club.
Even before he signed his current deal at Arsenal, we all knew Saka would play a major role at the club.
He had interest from around the continent and they had to tie him down to a new deal.
20 months later and the attacker has continued to get better and his importance to the team cannot be overstated.
Mikel Arteta has offloaded some top earners on the Arsenal wage bill like David Luiz, Willian and Mesut Ozil since he joined the club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the latest big-money earner to leave, and that has created space for Arsenal to give Saka a bumper new deal.
The Sun reveals the attacker earns the second least money at Arsenal now, at £30,000-a-week.
Only Nuno Tavares’ £27k-a-week is less than what the Euro 2020 star earns at the Emirates.
Whereas, Thomas Partey is the club’s top earner on £200k-a-week per week, followed by Alexandre Lacazette on £182k-a-week.
Even flop, Nicolas Pepe makes £140k-a-week.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Saka deserves to be one of Arsenal’s highest earners on his next contract. This will reflect his growing influence and importance to the team.
At 20, the England international is just at the start of his career, and he will only get better.
We need to show him we enjoy what he does for the club, and he will be rewarded if he keeps improving.

PRESS CONFERENCE – Arteta is very happy after Aston Villa win!
He should be receiving 120k at the minimum with bonus clauses attached to the new contract.
Wonder why it has even taken them this long to increase it. It should have been fixed after being player of the season last season.
This is unbelievable news. Our best player is the second last earner in the Club, really unbelievable. I wonder what was the Management doing all this time, couldnt they see the talent and the importance of this lad. Also, this in itself speaks so highly of the commitment of Saka to the Arsenal cause and his passion to play for the Club. Any other player with his talent would have simply walked off, but Saka is Arsenal through and through and he has stuck to our team. He deserves the highest wages in the Club, I would say even more than Partey and Laca.
Hardly earth shattering news. He wasn’t the superstar he is now when he signed the contract and can’t just walk away because he has a contract. There’s talk of him being offered 4 times what he currently earns when talks begin soon so let’s all stop worrying, he hardly looks unhappy does he? Except when he’s being clobbered by the likes of Mings and others that is 😊.
