According to German publication Bild, new Arsenal acquisition Kai Havertz has become the club’s highest paid player on a weekly salary of £330,000.
When bonuses are added to Havertz’s base wage, he might become the club’s greatest earner since Mesut Ozil.
He signed a long-term contract to move from Chelsea to Arsenal just lately.
The 24-year-old just moved to the North London club for £65 million a few days ago
Despite a lackluster season for Chelsea, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta thinks the German international may be a crucial contributor for the Gunners next year.
According to the same source, before recent contract extensions for talents like Bukayo Saka, Thomas Partey was the highest-paid player on Arsenal’s roster at well under £ 200,000 per week.
