Bukayo Saka is expected to sign his new Arsenal contract very soon and as per the most recent reports, the 21-year-old is set to become one of the highest earners in the clubs history.
Arsenal’s starboy is close to agreeing a new long-term contract extension at the North London club, which has never really been in doubt on the players’ side. Bukayo Saka only had one aim & that was to extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium.
According to a very reliable Sami Mokbel, Bukayo Saka’s new contract will make him one of the highest earners in Arsenal’s history and one of the highest earners in the Premier League.
Talks over a new contract for the 21-year-old begun nearly a year ago now but finally it looks like the agreement is in place, with the announcement expected shortly. The new deal is expected to keep Saka at the club until 2028.
Saka has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers over the last three years under Mikel Arteta and there is no doubt his new contract is thoroughly deserved, represented by his stats this season.

This evening, Sami Mokbel stated to the media that Bukayo Saka will earn £15million a year, including bonuses, taking his weekly wage to around £300,000-per-week.
It’s a big amount of money for a big player, and that would make him one of the highest earners in Arsenal’s history with just Mesut Özil ahead of him, who was earning £350,000-per-week in his last year at the Emirates.
He will become Arsenal’s current best paid player, with Gabriel Jesus in second place earning almost a £100,000 less, coming in at £265,000-per-week.
So far this season, Saka has scored 11 and assisted 10 goals in the Premier League, and is on course to win the Gunners their first Premier league title in 19 years. Bukayo Saka is also in the conversation to win Premier League player of the year.
Saka has been at the club since he was 8 years old & he’s set to sign a new deal, keeping him at the club until he’s 28 years old.
