Time to Go: Edu Must Finally Cash in on Arsenal Dud Who Earns More Than Gabriel & Saka

Arsenal have implemented a highly effective strategy in the transfer market over recent years, a factor contributing significantly to their on-field success.

The Gunners’ signings not only reflect their market value but have also seamlessly integrated into the team, with notable examples including Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and David Raya.

One remarkable aspect is their ability to maintain a cap on player wages, ensuring they do not exceed £300k-per-week, unlike their top six competitors.

However, despite this prudent approach, there have been instances where certain players have not justified their hefty salaries, with one individual earning double the amount of Gabriel Magalhaes, thereby putting a strain on the club’s finances.

Gabriel’s Arsenal Salary

Since teaming up with William Saliba, Gabriel’s performance has skyrocketed this season, now valued at £86m by CIES Football Observatory.

The Brazilian defender has honed his skills, effectively channeling his aggression alongside the more relaxed approach of his French partner.

Throughout this season, Gabriel has appeared in nearly every Premier League match, scoring four goals and securing an impressive 12 clean sheets.

Despite his stellar contributions, Gabriel’s earnings remain modest, with Capology reporting a weekly wage of just £100k, the lowest among regular starters in the squad.

This amounts to £5.2m annually, a fraction of what less impactful players on the fringes at Arsenal earn.

What Thomas Partey Earns at Arsenal

The acquisition of Rice during the summer conveyed a distinct message to Thomas Partey: his enduring prospects are not aligned with Arsenal.

Since 2020, the Ghanaian has endured a tumultuous period marred by injuries, notably during this season, where he has been absent for 26 matches due to groin and hamstring issues.

Consequently, the midfielder has started only four matches in the Premier League this season. Upon closer examination of the statistics, it becomes evident that he has garnered £2.6 million per start in this campaign, a figure that is quite staggering.

Arsenal’s Highest Earners

Kai Havertz£280k
Gabriel Jesus£265k
Declan Rice, Martin Odegaard£240k
Thomas Partey£200k
Bukayo Saka£195k

It might come as a surprise that the 30-year-old earns £200k-per-week, which is not only twice as much as Gabriel but also higher than Bukayo Saka, Saliba, and Gabriel Martinelli, despite their greater importance to the side.

Partey’s salary ranks him as the fifth-highest earner in the entire Arsenal squad, yet his performances on the field often fail to reflect this.

While Partey is contracted to the Gunners until 2025, it’s improbable that he will receive a new deal when his current one expires, according to David Ornstein via GiveMeSport.

Given his frequent setbacks and unreliability, it would be wise to consider moving him on this summer before he becomes a free agent at the end of next season.

There appears to be little benefit in retaining Partey, especially considering his high wage, and Edu Gaspar should prioritize selling him this summer if the opportunity arises.
