Arsenal Player With Highest Wages
Mesut Ozil is currently the highest paid player at Arsenal. The German signed a contract extension in January 2018 worth £350,000 per week, set to last till June 2021.
At the time, the club was under a lot of pressure due to both Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s uncertain future. Eventually, Wenger decided to swap out the latter for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and made Ozil one of the club’s, the Premier League’s and even the world’s highest paid players.
The second highest paid player at Arsenal is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who arrived at the club over a year back from Borussia Dortmund on a record fee of £56m. The stark contrast between the Gabon international and Ozil’s wages will give you an understanding on how far Arsenal are overpaying the former Real Madrid player.
Arsenal Players On Expiring Contracts 2018/19
|Name & Position||Date of Birth (Age)||End of contract||Contract option|
|Danny Welbeck||Nov 26, 1990 (28)||30.06.2019||–|
|Denis Suárez||Jan 6, 1994 (25)||30.06.2019||Option to buy|
|Nacho Monreal||Feb 26, 1986 (32)||30.06.2019||–|
|Carl Jenkinson||Feb 8, 1992 (27)||30.06.2019||–|
|Stephan Lichtsteiner||Jan 16, 1984 (35)||30.06.2019||–|
Danny Welbeck‘s spell has been riddled with injuries as the 27-year-old spends his final year of his contract with Arsenal on the sidelines, nursing a hit on his ankle. He has mostly operated as a secondary striker, since his arrival from Manchester United in 2014.
It is unclear at this point whether Arsenal will re-sign the 42-time England international to a new deal.
Denis Suarez arrived on a 6-month loan spell from Barcelona in January 2019. While the Gunners did not have to provide a guarantee of purchase in the upcoming summer, they are obligated to pay around £20m to acquire the Spaniard’s services on a permanent basis.
Nacho Monreal arrived at the Emirates for £9m in 2013 and since has eclipsed into one of the best full-backs in the Premier League. Currently 32, Monreal still remains a key figure in Arsenal’s defensive lineup under Unai Emery. With the side clamouring to hold off the weakest of opponents, it is almost mandatory for the club to renew the Spaniard’s contract for longer.
“It would be wise to keep hold of the Englishman”
Carl Jenkinson continues to be a third choice full-back for Arsenal with very rare appearances in excusable domestic cup games. With Stephan Lichtsteiner’s future uncertain and Hector Bellerin not available till September 2018, it would be wise to keep hold of the Englishman.
Stephan Lichtsteiner arrived from Juventus on a free last summer. He is the second oldest player in the Arsenal ranks behind, Petr Cech (36) and was supposed to be a one-year rental.
However, with Bellerin out of action till the next campaign and given Lichtsteiner’s unimaginable engine even at this age, the former Swiss international should definitely be recalled for another season.

Arsenal’s History In Top Tier English Football
Also known as the Gunners, Arsenal have spent most of their history in the English top-flight. The club has enjoyed UEFA Champions League football for over 14 seasons in a row under former manager, Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal’s home ground, Emirates is currently the 9th largest stadium in the United Kingdom behind Tottenham Hotspurs’ White Hart Lane and Celtic Park. They are also in Deloitte’s top ten list of the world’s richest clubs.
While their finances have taken a hit since their failure to qualify for the Champions League for the past 3 seasons (including the current one), Arsenal have adjusted by controlling their transfer expenditures.
They currently have one of the highest wage bills in the Premier League after the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Mesut Ozil to his new ginormous deal.
