According to the Daily Mail, the Arsenal midfielder Alex Song is set to be offered a new and improved long-term contract in the coming weeks.
The Cameroon midfielder’s current deal is said to be worth around £55,000-a-week, but if sources from the Mail are to be believed, Song could well be in line for a significant pay hike which will see him earn £75,000-a-week, making him one of Arsenal’s highest paid players.
The 24-year-old has been in inspired form this season and has been instrumental in the Gunners’ renaissance which now sees them occupy third spot in the league table, three points clear of the Spuds.
After losing both Fabregas and Na$ri at the end of last season, it’s great to see Arsenal actually making an effort to keep hold of their best players for the long-term future.
Thomas Vermaelen, Tomas Rosicky and Francis Coquelin have all been tied down to new deals. With Alex Song set to be added to that list, I certainly hope Robin van Persie is next in line….
