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 are reportedly looking to secure new deals with more than a few first team players. The Gunners must hold onto their star players to win the title this season.
The Gunners star in the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Francis Coquelin, and Olivier Giroud are in the limelight as far as the new contracts are concerned, according to reports from Daily Mail.
The Gunners are expected to seal a huge deal with Mesut Ozil that will make the former Real Madrid star earn £200,000-a-week for the next five years.
As per the provided Daily Mail link, star striker Olivier Giroud is going to sign a one year extension to his current deal. Alexis Sanchez is currently Arsenal’s first choice striker and in such a scenario, Giroud has mostly warmed the bench this season and used as an impact substitute.
On the other hand, Mail report that Coquelin is close to signing a new deal that will double his current wages i.e. make him earn £80,000-a-week, £18.72million ($23.5million) until 2021.
The 25-year-old star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League and has already featured in 18 games in the current campaign for the gunners.
