According to reports, the Gunners have had a breakthrough with talks over the 21-year-old future as an agreement in principle has been reached since last month over a new long-term deal.

The said deal would make Bukayo Saka one of Arsenal’s highest-paid players in the club’s history.

According to an insider, Arsenal have claimed that the England International is going nowhere amid interest from other English Premier League clubs – Liverpool and Manchester City.

Due to his brilliant form this season, Arsenal fans will be looking forward to hearing that Bukayo Saka has officially put pen to paper on a new contract.

With 13 goals and 10 assists so far this season in all competitions, Saka without a doubt is showing a sign of being Arsenal’s promising star player in years to come.

Saka is one of European’s most exciting current football players after enjoying a remarkable rise at Emirates Stadium.

The 21-year-old England international has bagged two times Arsenal Player of the Season award. He has made 169 appearances for Gunner’s first team since his debut in November 2018, winning the FA Cup and Community Shield in Mikel Arteta’s first season in charge as Arsenal head coach.

Therefore, Arsenal are willing to offer Bukayo Saka a lucrative deal reportedly worth 300 thousand pounds per week, with over a year left on his current contract.

In addition, the Gunners are in danger of losing Bukayo Saka who is a transfer target for Manchester City.

Arsenal are willing to make him their highest earner, earning more than the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard.

If the aforementioned deal falls through, Bukayo Saka would earn over 280 thousand pounds per week at Emirates, which will make him one of the best Arsenal-paid players in history with the club board reluctant to match Mesut Ozil’s record of 350,000 pounds per week at the North London club.

Gabriel Jesus, a Brazilian striker, earns £265,000 a week, making him Arsenal’s highest-paid player at the moment.

Below is Arsenal’s top 10 highest paid list if Bukayo Saka’s proposed deal falls through:

Bukayo Saka £288,000 per week.

Gabriel Jesus £265,000 per week.

Thomas Partey £200,000 per week.

Oleksandr Zinchenko £150,000 per week.

Ben White £120,000 per week.

Granit Xhaka £120,000 per week.

Martin Odegaard £115,000 per week.

Kieran Tierney £110,000 per week.

Eddie Nketiah £100,000 per week.

Gabriel Martinelli £90,000 per week.

What’s next for Arsenal?
The Premier League leaders will return to action after the International break in the English Premier League against Leeds United on Saturday, 1st of April, 2023, as they will be looking forward to continuing their fine form in the pursuit of the EPL title.
