Arsenal are ready to give midfielder Alex Song a massive pay-rise in return for a new long-term commitment.
The 24-year-old Cameroon international’s existing deal is worth around £55,000 a week and runs until the summer of 2014.
But Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has asked chief executive Ivan Gazidis to talk money with Song and secure his long-term future before the start of next season. The expectation is that Song will be offered a five-year deal worth around £75,000 a week – putting him among the club’s highest earners.
