Bukayo Saka to become Arsenal’s highest paid player

Bukayo Saka will become Arsenal’s biggest earner when signing his new contract, the Mail reports.

The England international, who scored in Sunday’s win over Ukraine, is set to earn £300,000-a-week, £15m a year.

This would go down as one of Arsenal’s most lucrative deals in their history.


“The 21-year-old has become a vital player for club and country over the past 12 months,” the Mail adds.

“A host of clubs, including Manchester City, have been monitoring Saka’s future given his current deal is due to expire at the end of next season.

“But Saka has privately made clear that he wants to stay having been convinced of the club’s direction under Arteta.

“The forward is eager to start his Champions League career and barring an almighty collapse; Arsenal will qualify for the competition for the first time since the 2016-17 season.”

Tottenham, Chelsea, and Real Madrid eye Nagelsmann

Tottenham’s No. 1 target Julian Nagelsmann is also a potential option for Chelsea and Real Madrid in the summer.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is waiting to hear if the German would be interested in the managerial role, but after his sacking by Bayern Munich, Nagelsmann will be highly sought-after this summer.

“Real Madrid are among the clubs already interested in the 35-year-old and joining a team already set-up for instant success may suit Nagelsmann,” the Mail adds.

“Likewise, Nagelsmann has admirers at Chelsea and would interest the club if they decided to replace Graham Potter.

“The Blues have had an upsurge in results recently, which has helped ease the pressure on Potter following a largely disappointing first season at Stamford Bridge.

“But further negativity between now and the end of the season could still leave Chelsea’s owners with a decision to make, and the fact Nagelsmann is readily available may be a factor.”
