Arsenal are set to make Alexis Sanchez the highest paid player in the Premier League by offering him a deal worth around £300,000 per week. This offer the Gunners hope will persuade the player to sign a new deal.
The Gunners have been reluctant to pay mega salaries to their players in the past, but the risk of losing Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez has seen them change their policy.
Before now the highest earner at Arsenal was Mesut Ozil, who earns £140,000 per week.
Reports this week claimed that the Chilean wants a move to Man City to reconnect with his former boss, Pep Guardiola. But the Gunners would hope that this offer will make him change his mind.
Sanchez wants to play in a team that wins trophy, the Gunners are said to have promised him that they will invest in players that would bring trophies to the club next season.
If Sanchez accepts this offer, he would beat the salary of the world’s most expensive player, Paul Pogba who earns £290,000 per week.
