KEY POINTS

  • The Sun reports that his new deal would see him pocket £350,000-a-week and plus add ons
  • Mikel Arteta is said to have been instrumental in negotiations,
  • Ozil will now be the second top earner at Arsenal
  • Following him in third place is summer arrival Willian, who rakes in a 220k a week

Arsenal Captain Pierre Aubameyang’s new Arsenal contract will reportedly see him become the highest-paid player at the Emirates.

The Sun reports that his new deal would see him pocket £350,000-a-week and plus add ons eclipsing Mesut Ozil who is currently the highest paid player.

The German playmaker is on £350,000-a-week in North London, but The Athletic  have stated Aubameyang will become the top earner at the club.

No figure has been mentioned by the news outlet, only that his current £200k-a-week deal will be vastly improved.

Mikel Arteta is said to have been instrumental in negotiations, with the club’s former head of football Raul Sanllehi playing a huge part in talks before his departure.

An official announcement of  Aubameyang’s stay is expected to be made imminently, and could take place before Saturday’s clash with Fulham.

Ozil will now be the second top earner at Arsenal following his contract extension in January 2018.

Following him in third place is summer arrival Willian, who rakes in a 220k a week after joining on a free transfer.

In fourth is Alexandre Lacazette who earns £182,000-a-week, with club-record signing Nicolas Pepe completing the top five thanks to his £140,000-a-week deal.

Brazilian defender David Luiz then follows with £125,000, with right-back Hector Bellerin down in seventh (£110,000).

Then there are three players all earning £100,000 per week – Sead Kolasinac, Bernd Leno and Granit Xhaka.

Gunners fans have also been buoyed by the news that the club remain keen to sign Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar.
