Arsenal have signed Jakub Kiwior from Spezia, and Fabrizio Romano has revealed the salary/wages he will earn at the Emirates.
The Gunners wasted the first half of the January transfer window chasing Mykhaylo Mudryk. A deal even looked imminent at one point, but Chelsea swooped in and lured him away.
Jakub Kiwior’s salary: New Arsenal signing’s wages
Arsenal sealed a deal for Jakub Kiwior out of nowhere.
We were all waiting for Trossard’s announcement when reports suddenly emerged that we had agreed a deal to sign the Spezia defender on a long-term deal.
Those reports turned out to be true, and Arsenal completed the signing for a fee reported to be in the region of £21 million (Football London).
Fabrizio Romano has shared additional details about the deal – like the length of the Pole’s contract and also the wages he’s set to earn at the Emirates Stadium.
The journalist said in a tweet: “Kiwior will earn £3 million gross per season until June 2028.”
That’s not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but Kiwior will pocket better wages than a few big names at Arsenal.
He’ll earn more than Saliba and Smith Rowe
Spotrac have a list of Arsenal players’ wages, and we can all guess who the big earners are.
Gabriel Jesus pockets £265,000 a week, while Thomas Partey earns £200,000. Oleksandr Zinchenko is next on the list, making £150,000 every week, while Granit Xhaka and Ben White both earn £120,000 a week.
Kiwior’s £3 million a year equates to just under £58,000 a week, which is more than what Takehiro Tomiyasu, Gabriel Magalhaes and Rob Holding make.
Even William Saliba and Emile Smith Rowe earn lesser – they’re both on £40,000 a week.
Arsenal take on Manchester City in the FA Cup on Friday and Kiwior is in line to make his debut. It will be interesting to see how he fares if he gets an opportunity at the Etihad.
