Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal’s duo forward Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are reportedly said to be requesting a mega wage increase on their weekly wages to £250k-a-week in their new deals, according to report from The Times.
Arsenal are strongly keen on trying the duo club star to a new long-term deals, following their increased importance to Arsenal, but the contracts required to achieve this ambition may end up costing more that Arsenal originally budgeted for.
According to The Times, the report from the outlet revealed that the duo are looking forward to having £70 added to their deal with Arsenal which wasn’t the deal originally discussed 12 months ago. They are both concerned about the uncertainty of the pound’s financial weight following the decision to leave the European Union earlier this year.
It may end up being the first indications of how Brexit will affect Premier League football but Arsenal remain determined to sign their star-players down to new contracts, to avoid the chances of either of the pair leaving the club for one of Europe’s giants in the coming years.
Sanchez who arrived Arsenal following a year which Ozil arrived at the Emirates, are both in the prime ages of their careers and seeking to win the biggest honours with Arsenal – particularly the Premier League and Champions League, though the Arsenal squad need to improve if they are however, seeking the chance to lifting the Premier League honour.
