Arsenal star, Bukayo Saka became the highest-paid player in the London club when he renewed his contract less than 24 hours ago.

The 23-year-old has been a stand-out player for Arsenal since he broke into the senior team.

According to Sports Bible, Saka's long-term deal is worth 288,000 euros per week(plus bonuses).

Arsenal are known to be modest with salary payment and on the transfer market despite being among the top six club with heavy financial muscle.

Leandro Trossard who joined from Brighton earns 90,000 euros weekly, but Saka's and Martinelli's new deals have displaced him from the top 10.

Before Saka's new contract, Gabriel Jesus was the best-paid player after the former Manchester City striker agreed to a 265,000 euros weekly wage.

He beat the second person on the list, Thomas Partey, by a distance. The Ghanaian earns 200,000 euros weekly.

Saka's new deal takes him above and beyond both players.

Gabriel Martinelli also recently agreed to a new contract which is believed to earn him around 180,000 euros weekly and thus, he is fourth on the list.

Oleksandr Zinchenko will now come in fifth with 150,000 euros, while Ben White and Granit Xhaka are both at 120,000 euros.
