EPL: Arsenal to sell Welbeck, Ramsey to fund Ozil’s weekly wages


Arsenal are ready to sell midfielder, Aaron Ramsey and forward, Danny Welbeck in order to fund Mesut Ozil’s new contract.

Arsenal recently tied Ozil down to a new deal which is understood to see the World Cup winner earn £350,000-a-week.

New arrivals, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrik Mkhitaryan are being paid £200,000-a-week.

A source at the Emirate Stadium told Daily Mail UK that three deals have obliterated the club’s wage structure and there are fears that those whose contracts are up for renewal may now make unreasonable demands.

Ramsey and Welbeck have 18 months remaining on their contracts and are currently in talks with the club.

After the debacle of Ozil and Alexis Sanchez going into the final year of their contracts, the Gunners are unlikely to let Ramsey and Welbeck do the same.

It means Arsenal may opt to sell the pair, rather than give into their demands.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is understood to be particularly desperate to keep Ramsey at the Emirates, but the Welshman is likely to seek a major hike from his current wages of £110,000-a-week.

Welbeck’s position is weaker, with the former Manchester United player essentially now only a back-up option to Wenger’s favoured attackers. This season he’s started just seven Premier League games.

Arsenal are also yet to agree a new contract with Jack Wilshere, however the option to sell the midfielder has passed with the England international having just months remaining on his current deal.
