Saka getting a huge pay rise will not cause problems states pundit

Alan Hutton insists Arsenal players will have no issues with Bukayo Saka getting a bumper new deal from the club because he is worth it.

Saka has entered the last two years of his current deal at Arsenal, and we expect him to sign a new one soon.

The attacker is one of the club’s lowest-paid players, and they have been adding new players to the squad.

Most of their new signings will out-earn the England international, but when he pens his new deal, we expect him to become one of the top earners at the club.

Sometimes, some players can frown at that, but Hutton believes Arsenal players will have no issue with it whatsoever because the Euro 2020 finalist is one of their best performers.

He said to Football Insider:

“I can only go off my experiences and it was nothing that ever bothered me or anybody round about me.

“Don’t get me wrong if it was somebody who wasn’t playing, who was sitting in the stands and threw his toys out the pram then of course you’re going to be annoyed with it.

“Saka is someone who loves playing football, always plays with a smile on his face, always gives 110 per cent. He’s scoring goals, he’s assisting, he’s playing at a high level so why would you begrudge somebody that if they deserve it. Ultimately they’re making you and your team better so you have no reason to complain.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Even if Saka becomes Arsenal’s highest earner, the players will understand because he is arguably their most important player now.

The 20-year-old keeps getting better and some people seem to forget how young he is.

Hopefully, this season he will help us make a return to the Champions League.

  1. Saka is a good player and may be on the verge of becoming a great player but if Saka is given huge money after scoring 10 and assisting 6, what is Martinelli worth? Smith Rowe scored the same number of goals playing far fewer minutes. What is he worth? Arsenal have to pay Saka to keep him, the question is, what happens if they do and Martinelli out performs him? Does he get big money too? And Smith Rowe? He could easily score more goals than Saka if he gets to play. .

    Martinelli seems to be an Arteta favorite, which seems odd because he plays a lot like Pepe, who cannot get a game.

    Smith-Rowe seems to be the odd man out, with his versatility counting against him. He will need to move on in much the same way Gabriel Jesus had to mve on and Raheem Sterling had to move on when it was obvious that they were being supplanted by Haaland and Grealish.

    It is a the wise player (and player agent) who sees the writing on the wall and looks for the exit before playing second banana to inferior players costs Smith Rowe his career (Jess Lingard anyone).

  2. So who do we replace smith-rowe with since a strong option for a starting place is against your policy.

  3. Let’s not make the same mistakes over and over again! Give him a solid raise but not excessive like we always do, with salary review in 2 years time.

    If Saka believes in MAs process, he’ll sign. Same for Saliba

  4. Keeping these young stars is the biggest task facing Arsenal in the up coming years….We need to avoid losing theme because We’r in m’y opinion heading the right way and slowly but surly becoming a force again…..

  5. Our young players need a lot of encouragement, they must understand how to balance pay with skills progression, “pride comes before a fall” , Saka should get a realistic pay rise, same as Saliba and Martinelli.

  6. In my opinion, the club has already made a rod for it’s back, by awarding Nketiah a reported £100,000 a week and every other Arsenal player will use this figure as the minimum starting point of any negotiations.

    Such poor negotiating skills once again by the club.
