Gabriel Jesus wages: How much money will he earn at Arsenal?

Gabriel Jesus has signed for Arsenal from Manchester City

Arsenal have officially announced the signing of Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazilian forward has joined the Gunners in a £45m move from Manchester City. He has been handed the number 9 shirt.

“I’m so happy to sign for this big club,” Jesus told Arsenal’s website. “Since day one when I knew I could come to play for Arsenal, I was happy.

“I know the staff, I know some players, the Brazilian ones. I know there are a lot of top players. They are young and I’m still young as well, so I am so happy to be here to help. I come to help, to learn as well and to try to do my best.”

Mikel Arteta told the club’s website: “I’m very excited. The club has done a tremendous job to recruit a player of this stature. I know Gabriel personally very well, and we all know him well from his time in the Premier League and being really successful here.

“This is a position that’s been on our radar for a long time now and we have managed to get a player that we all wanted, so I’m really happy.”

Jesus, who scored 95 times for Manchester City in six seasons, is now Arsenal’s second highest-paid player.

Partey is the only player who earns more than him.

Pepe is Arsenal’s third best-paid player, followed by White, Bellerin and Tierney.

Nkeitah recently signed a massive deal to extend his stay at the club and is one of nine Arsenal players who earn £100,000-per-week or more.

Odegaard is one of Arsenal’s best players but earns ‘just’ £79,000-per-week, making him the 12th highest-paid player at the club.

While only two players in Arsenal’s first-team squad earn less than Saka: Tavares and new signing Vieira.

It was reported earlier this year by The Sun, though, that the Gunners are willing to quadruple Saka’s wages and hand him a £125,000-per-week deal.

The youngster has just two years left on his current deal and could sign an extension soon.
