Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) is expected to become the highest paid player in the team through renewal of the contract.
Saka, a former Arsenal youth player, entered the first team for the first time in the 2018-19 season. Saka quickly increased his playing time and consolidated his position. In the early days, he played an active role as a multi-player, luxuriously playing left wingback, fullback, and side midfielder Kasi.
After the appointment of manager Mikel Arteta, he firmly established himself as a right wing forward. Saka is leading Arsenal’s attack with his dribbling breakthrough using his unique tempo and soccer sense.
This season, Saka is performing at his best. Saka scored 12 goals and 10 assists in 28 matches in the English Premier League (EPL). With a total of 22, he scored the most offensive points after Erling Holland (33) and Harry Kane (23).
Saka also became the sixth-youngest player ever to score 50 points in the Premier League, behind Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney, Robbie Fowler, Cesc Fabregas and Chris Sutton. 스포츠토토
Arsenal, of course, is preparing to renew Sakawa’s contract. Saka also has a special loyalty to Arsenal, so he considers renewing his contract as a top priority. Britain’s ‘The Sun’ said, “Saka will sign a 5-year contract for a weekly wage of 300,000 pounds (approximately 480 million won). He will be the highest paid player on the team.”
Currently, in the Premier League, Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) and David De Gea (Man United) boast the highest weekly wage of £375,000 (about 600 million won). Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who won the top scorer last season, earns 190,000 pounds (approximately 302 million won) a week. Arsenal is determined to protect the ace through certain weekly wage treatment.
