Arsenal set to offer huge new deals to Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez
Arsenal are preparing to offer bumper new contracts to Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Gunners are ready to up their pay structure in an effort to keep their two biggest names at the club.
Convincing Germany international Ozil and Chile star Sanchez to commit to new deals will reportedly be manager Arsene Wenger’s priority as he prepares to allocate spending of his club’s £40m-plus cut of the Premier League new TV contract.
Ozil, aged 27, moved to the Emirates from Real Madrid in 2013 and is currently under contract until June 2018. He is thought to be on £140,000-a-week at present.
Sanchez, aged 27, joined from Barcelona a year later and is also tied to the Gunners until June 2018. He currently earns around £130,000-a-week.
Both players will expect to command around £200,000-a-week if they sign new deals.
New long-term deal would keep the duo at the north London club well into their thirties.
