Arsenal’s wage bill has taken a significant cut under Mikel Arteta. The hefty salaried players like Aubameyang, Kolasinac, Ozil, Willian, David Luiz leaving the club have made the wage bill look very healthy. The reports suggest that the current annual wage bill is even less than when it was under Arsene Wenger. This could encourage Arsenal fans to have a big summer spending.

— Emirates FA Cup (@EmiratesFACup) February 10, 2022
Nicolas Pepe currently is the third highest-paid player in the Arsenal squad with a salary of £140,000 a week. This amounts to an annual salary of £7,280,000. Nicolas Pepe has still loads to do to prove these hefty wages. With 15 goals and 8 assists in 69 appearances in the Premier League Nicolas Pepe is yet to score for Arsenal in the Premier League this season. Although he has only appeared 9 times for Arsenal so far with 4 substitute appearances. Nicolas Pepe would be hoping to turn his season around after an impressive campaign with Ivory Coast in AFCON.
#2 Alexandre Lacazette – £182,063 a week
There's a reason Lacazette has 2 open play Premier league goals in over 1000 minutes this season.

A salary which amounts to £9,467,276 annually, Lacazette is number 2 in the list of highest paid Arsenal Players in the current squad. Lacazette has found the net 53 times for the Gunners in the Premier League in 145 appearances. Lacazette hasn’t been the most clinical striker for Arsenal because of which it is likely that he will be departing for free in the summer. Arsenal are relying on Lacazette to find the back of the net to secure the Champions League spot this season. With only 3 goals in the Premier League in 17 apps this season, it is worrying for Arsenal.
