Bukayo Saka to earn almost £15m per year at Arsenal



Impressive season

A new report has revealed that Bukayo Saka will earn close to £15m per year at Arsenal, including bonuses, once he has signed a new contract with the club. Saka is enjoying a strong season and is likely to be a contender for the Premier League Player of the Season award if Arsenal manages to win the title. He has contributed 12 goals and 10 assists to his team in 28 top-flight appearances.

Impressive stats

Saka’s contributions make him one of the most prolific players in the Premier League. Only Kevin De Bruyne has been involved in more goals this season, but Saka is the only player so far to score double digits in both goals and assists. In total, he has been involved in 22 goals, which is bettered only by Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.

Contract renewal imminent

Arsenal has been keen to sign a new contract with Saka, who is currently only bound to the club until the end of the next season. The Daily Mail previously reported that Saka had told Arsenal he would be renewing his deal. Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has also confirmed this. Now, there are more updates about Saka’s financial package.

Lucrative new deal

The new contract is expected to be worth almost £15m per season, which means that Saka will take home approximately £300,000 per week. This will make him the best-paid player at Arsenal, but it won’t surpass Mesut Ozil’s £350,000-per-week salary as the highest in the club’s history.

Verbal agreement

According to reports, Saka had three clubs monitoring him, with two from the Premier League, one of which is believed to be Manchester City. Nevertheless, Romano has said there is “no way” any other teams will be signing Saka this summer. He also claimed that the player’s verbal agreement with Arsenal remains in place and he will sign his new deal soon.

Exciting future at Arsenal

In light of these developments, there could be much for Arsenal and Saka to look forward to together. The player is keen to play in the Champions League for the first time, which Arsenal is likely to qualify for next season. The Gunners will be eager to build a long-term project around their star player and keep him happy and committed. Tying down a player of his potential is a sign of how much Arsenal has progressed in recent years, and aiming for silverware together will be the next goal, with Saka already having won two trophies in 2020.
