Revealed: Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil's Arsenal wage demands
It has now been revealed how much Arsenal pair Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are asking for in wages if they are to sign a new deal at the Emirates.
Both Sanchez and Ozil have been stalling over signing a new deal at the Gunners, both for reasons thought to be Arsene Wenger’s future and the amount they are asking for per week.
According to reports, the pair are asking for close to Paul Pogba’s astonishing £290,000-a-week deal with the Red Devils.
Mesut is said to currently be on a deal worth £140,000-a-week but Sanchez reportedly earns £130,000-a-week.
Both players are incredibly important to this current Arsenal side, but with pressure on Arsene Wenger as well as uncertainty surrounding the club, the pair could love to move in the summer.
Fans are beginning to protest against the French manager with yet another season ending in disappointment. The club were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich, with the final aggregate score being 10-2 in the German’s favour.
With more protests planned throughout the rest of the season, fan pressure will not be going away anytime soon and could leave to Wenger leaving at the end of the season.
Sanchez and Ozil both featured for the Gunners against Lincoln on Saturday as they ran out as they won 5-0 and secured their place in the FA Cup Semi-final at Wembley.
