Arsenal’s players have had their weekly wages revealed, with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil the top earners on £140k-per-week each.
The club have apparently made a list of the players’ weekly earnings public. The Express via the Daily Post have a list of each player’s weekly wage and how long they have left on their contracts. The figures do not seem to include bonuses or image rights.
According to the list, Alexis and Ozil currently earn £7m-per-year and are, of course, on the final year of their contracts. It’s been frequently reported that they’re looking to at least double their wages to extend their stay at the Emirates Stadium.
The other players in the six-figure bracket are Petr Cech, Sead Kolasinac, Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Hector Bellerin. Interestingly, the wages of Kolasinac (£119,500-per-week) and Lacazette (£100,000-per-week) are significantly lower than what was reported when they signed for the club.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is reportedly on £65,000 per week. He’s in the middle of a contract dispute with the club and could be looking to significantly increase that. In terms of fringe players, the likes of Kieran Gibbs, Mathieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson, who are all allowed to leave the club this summer, take up a combined £175,000 per week.
