Ray Palour wishes Arsenal would ‘go big’ with their wages, advising them to give out £250,000pw for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
There have been speculations that Alexis will be moving away from Arsenal this summer and his wage demand have ranged from £250k per week to £450k depending on the source of the news.
Parlour wants Arsenal to try their best in keeping the Chilean at the club as he thinks he still has a lot to offer.
“Arsenal are going to have to go big,” Parlour said, as quoted on Alan Brazil’s personal Twitter account.
“They’re going to have to go to £250,000 a week which the board are probably not going to like to do. But this is what you’ve got to do to keep Sanchez. Sign them up, pay the money.
“Sanchez is so important and you saw that on the weekend. If you are going to replace Sanchez, with his quality, you’re going to have to spend £50million plus.
“Then, they want £200,000 a week because that is the going rate of everyone at other clubs.”
Parlour also wants Arsenal to put as much effort and funds in retaining Mesut Oxil at the Emirates.
The pair were exceptional in the game against Stoke City on Saturday, and it’s surprising to witness how lots of pundits now hold Ozil in high esteem and thinks he is worth holding on to because they saw him play well this weekend.
