EPL: Martinelli demands Arsenal triple his current wages

 


Arsenal forward, Gabriel Martinelli wants the club to triple his current salary if he is to sign a new contract.

The Gunners are keen to tie Martinelli down to a new long-term contract as he emerges as one of the best young talents in European football.

Negotiations with the 21-year-old’s agents have started, but Daily Mail reports an agreement is not close.

There is, however, no panic from either party, with Martinelli known to be settled in London and keen to stay at the Emirates.

As it stands, Gabriel Jesus and Thomas Partey are Arsenal’s highest earners, both in excess of £ 200,000 per week.

Martinelli currently earns in the region of £ 70,000 per week.

This means the Premier League club have to more than double his current salary if they are to reach a successful agreement.
