REVEALED! What Alex Iwobi and his teammates earn at Arsenal

Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi may be one of the best performing Arsenal players under Unai Emery at the moment, but the Nigerian forward is nowhere near being among the best paid players at the Premier League club. while it will not come as a surprise to anyone that Mesut Ozil is the top earner at Arsenal with his £350,000 a week wages well publicised, Iwobi’s wage would leave many stunned just as that of some of the other players at the club.

This time last year there was no way either Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil were going to sign a new deal at Arsenal, no matter how desperate the Gunners were in getting them to stay. The crux of the matter were down to success and, as usual, money with both players believing that they deserved to be on the top dollar that other elite players in the Premier League were on.

Sanchez was eventually moved on to Manchester United, to earn somewhere between £350,000 a week, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the other way. And with Sanchez’s wages out of the way the Gunners were able to hand Ozil that juicy £350,000 a week deal. That hasn’t exactly proven to be the shrewdest of moves with the German out of favour at the Emirates with Emery but he might not be the only one earning his wage at the club. According to Spotrac these are Arsenal’s wages:

Sead Kolasinac’s £120,000 a week would probably be the biggest surprise to fans of the club but the Bosnian was a free transfer from Schalke and they always come with a bigger wage. Kolasinac meanwhile earns more than Aaron Ramsey who would reportedly earn £170,000 a week at Juventus should he move there at the end of this season on a free, along with the big bonus he’ll probably be given by the Old Lady.

That said, while some of the wages may leave many Arsenal fans feeling a little disappointed, other wages earned by players at the club appear shrewd for one of the Premier League’s top earning clubs. Then again, one might argue that not paying enough is why they haven’t attracted bigger names, that and no longer being a top four side.

Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to West Ham United on Saturday coupled with Manchester United’s win against Spurs means the Gunners are now fifth and level on points with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, yet Emery has no money to spend in January. What do you feel Arsenal needs to do to become a title challenging side again?
