Arsenal are reportedly set to offer Eddie Nketiah a new five-year deal with 65 percent pay-rise.
Eddie only has a year left on his current deal with the Gunners and given his impressive performance against Norwich City on Tuesday, Arsenal are allegedly keen to tie the 18-year-old for much longer.
According to the Sun, Arsenal are prepared to not only hand the ex-Chelsea striker a five-year deal, they’re also going to give him a 650% pay-rise. The England u19 international already supposedly earns £2k-per-week and this is set to rise to £15k.
To put this into perspective, this is reportedly £5k more than Rob Holding, who’s four years Eddie’s senior.
Eddie played for 35 minutes against Norwich in the League Cup on Tuesday night but managed to completely turn the result around. Arsenal had just minutes left on the clock when he came on and equalized with his first touch of the game. The teenager then went on to win it in extra time with a second.
