Arsenal’s top five earners revealed after Kai Havertz signing

In the past, Arsenal was known for being a club that refrained from offering exorbitant salaries to their players. This approach may have resulted in missing out on some top targets in previous seasons. However, under the management of Mikel Arteta, the club’s stance on player salaries seems to be changing.

With Arteta leading the rebuild of the Gunners, the club has allocated more funds to attract and secure top talents. Consequently, Arsenal recently broke their transfer record to sign Declan Rice in the current transfer window, signalling a shift in their financial approach to player acquisitions.

Moreover, the club made another significant signing in Kai Havertz, who now holds the distinction of being Arsenal’s highest earner. According to a report by Give Me Sport, Havertz’s weekly wage at the Emirates stands at an impressive £330,000, making him the top earner among the squad.

The top five earners at the Emirates are:

  1. Kai Havertz – £330,000-per-week
  2. Gabriel Jesus – £265,000-per-week
  3. Declan Rice – £250,000-per-week
  4. Thomas Partey- £200,000-per-week
  5. Bukayo Saka- £195,000-per-week

The increased willingness to invest in player salaries demonstrates Arsenal’s commitment to competing at the highest level and assembling a competitive squad under Arteta’s management. This financial shift could prove pivotal in the club’s efforts to return to their former glory and challenge for major honours in the future.

We are beginning to show we are serious about returning to the top of English football and this is an exciting time to be an Arsenal fan.

These high earners must justify why they are paid so much when next season comes around and we believe they will do so.

  1. Havertz has moved to Arsenal for a reported £65 mil deal, This could turn into a situation where the German reaches new heights with us. However, for now this deal is a winner for Chelsea as the club collect some good funds among other factors.

    This price tag is surprising considering Havertz had only two years left on his contract and his performance wasn’t spectacular.
    But Arsenal is banking on the German potential and the fact he could comes alive in an Arsenal shirt.

  2. I hope this report is not correct, because I am at pains to understand how an untested, unproven, Chelsea bit-player Havertz can be the highest earner in Arsenal, never mind by such a wide margin. I’m waiting eagerly for somebody to refute this.

      1. I’ve seen a.couple of different reports on his salary with £150kpw quoted as well as the top one. It’s fair to say that he would be unlikely to take a pay cut

      2. That should have put us off signing him, if true. To make him our top earner when it’s not clear where he fits into our team is beyond strange. Either these salary reports are untrue or arteta is absolutely convinced he can fit him into the first team and he’ll be a big success.

  3. It’s not that simple how players wages work. Kai Havertz needs to pay higher tax than others when his money crosses into Germany because of their local tax law. And the signing of the ex Chelsea man brought extra sponsorship to Arsenal from his own personal entourage. Part of the reason why Bayern Munich can poach a lot of talents all across the world. I hope our captain Martin Odegaard signs an improved contract this season. He was our best player last season and he only earns 140k per week. He deserves more. He could be as iconic captain as Tony Adams and Patrick Vieira.

  4. Having clicked on the link in the article there is nothing to suggest that they or another link I was directed to know the amount of Havertz’s deal and in DR’s salary it was total guesswork.

    Arteta clearly has very high hopes with KH if the difference in salary between him and Rice is as suggested. I can only hope that the club know what they are doing. Allowing the wage structure to spiral again would be a disaster imo.

    1. Your last sentence needs correction. The wage structure has already spiralled. All that is left now is that players MUST deliver else we would have a heavy backlash against the manager and Edu Gasper

  5. I can’t really understand how anyone can know what is in a players contract and how much they earn, so am treating this article as mainly BS, especially the wages quoted for Havertz. I think management learned their lesson with the ‘supposed’ earnings of Özil and Aubamayang.
