Report: New Alexis Sanchez contract to make him Arsenal’s top earner

Alexis Sanchez Chile

The Chile international is set to get a boost to his £130,000 per week wages, according to The Daily Mail.

Arsenal are closing in on a new contract for Alexis Sanchez that will make him the club’s highest ever earner, according to The Daily Mail.

The Chile international has brought real star quality to the Emirates Stadium since signing for the Gunners last summer and has consistently shown his class for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Sanchez was a driving force in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Manchester United last time out, scoring a first-half brace to help the North London club to a crucial win against a Premier League title rival.

Despite the fact that the South American star still has a number of years left on his current deal with the Gunners, The Daily Mail instigate that the club are keen to refresh his terms to extend his stay at the Emirates.

The report states that Sanchez currently earns £130,000 per week, but if a deal to keep him with Arsenal is agreed the wages will usurp Mesut Ozil’s £140,000 per week salary and make him the London club’s highest-ever earner.

Sanchez has become a favourite amongst the Arsenal fans, with most surely agreeing that he is worth the extra money.
