BUKAYO SAKA put pen to a paper on a new contract at Arsenal on Wednesday – but his pay still pales in comparison to his Gunners team-mates.

The 18-year-old whizkid saw his weekly wages skyrocket from £3,000 to £30,000.

And deservedly so, with the winger excelling all season – even when played out of position at left-back.

On the new deal Gunners boss Mikel Arteta told the club’s official website: “Bukayo is a talented and intelligent young player.

“He has impressed me with his work ethic and attitude to learn and adapt, and it has paid off in his performances.

“I am excited to continue working with him to develop him further, and for him to help us achieve our goals.”

But Saka’s £30,000 a week, while impressive, is miles adrift of Arsenal’s top earners – with Mesut Ozil pocketing nearly 12 TIMES that amount.

The former Real Madrid star, 31, hasn’t played since football returned and has been a shell of his old self for the past few seasons.

Despite that, he rakes in a staggering £350,000 a week – far and away Arsenal’s top earner.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sits second on £200,000 per week, with strike partner Alexandre Lacazette not far behind on £182,000 weekly.

Interestingly, all three – Ozil, Aubameyang and Lacazette – have been linked with summer moves away from the Emirates.

Nicolas Pepe (£140,000), David Luiz (£125,000) and Hector Bellerin (£110,000) come in next.

Then there are THREE players all earning £100,000 per week – Sead Kolasinac, Bernd Leno and Granit Xhaka.

Down at the bottom, Saka is joined by Gabriel Martinelli, Rob Holding, Emiliano Martinez and Konstantinos Mavropanos in the £30,000-and-under group.

Saka himself shared his pride at his new contract, tweeting: “London is my home. Arsenal my team.

“I’m so happy to finally announce my contract extension.

“I love playing for this club and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.

“The hard work continues so I can continue living my dream. God is Great!”
