The club is extremely eager to tie the player down at the club
Across the last string of seasons, a massive flaw in Arsenal’s transfer strategy has been an ineptness to identify prospective starlets and seal their future to the club. The side has ended up losing a slew of players on free transfers owing to this botched approach.
With Florian Balogun set to become the latest name to go under the club’s radar and switch clubs at the end of the season, the club is working fast to correct its mistakes. After nailing down Bukayo Saka’s future with the wonderkid signing a contract extension, the side is now looking to ensure Emile Smith Rowe remains at the club for a lengthy period of time.
New 40,000 Pound Deal Awaiting
Although he still has a substantial period on his current deal, one which sees him earn 15,000 pounds per week, the midfielder is all set for a bumper pay rise. As per news emanating from the club, the side is set to massively elevate his wages to 40,000 pounds per week to put him in the same bracket as Saka.
Mikel Arteta is said to be the driving force behind this new deal with the club’s manager enamoured by the player. The 20 year old has been in electric form across the course of the last month with him scoring the one and assisting the three goals in that period.
His resplendent displays have seen him hold onto his place in Arsenal’s playing 11 in the Premier League. His gripping talent has had a telling impact on Arsenal’s form with the player’s ability to traverse defences with splitting passes seeing him become the recipient of the new deal.
Arsenal are working assiduously this window to not only commit players to the club but also let go off outcasts. The side has only today offloaded Sokratis after agreeing to terminate his contract midway into its completion.
