- Arsenal stars will have to result in getting a pay-cut with their current situation
- Mikel Arteta's men are gradually slipping into the relegation zone this season
- The Gunner have only managed to win one match in their last ten Premier League matches
Arsenal players are set to lose 25 per cent of their wages if they fail to stay up in the English topflight division, Daily Mail.
The Gunners are currently 15th on the log after managing one win in their last ten Premier League matches this season.
And if the north London club drop out of the top division, players would have to accept a pay cut to compete in the Championships next season.
It is expected that Mikel Arteta's side would be in the top six by this stage of the competition and would probably compete for a Champions League spot before the end.
Due to the financial crisis currently rocking the world's economy because of the global pandemic, players' contracts have been pegged with pay-cut clauses.
Arsenal pays the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the rest of the players more than £150million annually.
Earlier in the season, players had to accept a wage reduction during the heat of the financial crisis across the world.
The Gunner are four points above the relegation zone following their 2-1 loss to everyone at Goodison Park.
Arteta's men have only managed to earn just two points from their last seven matches and the possibility of staying at the top is getting slimmer.
The Spanish boss has come under immense pressure for dropping their highest-earning player Mesut Ozil for half of the campaign.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mesut Ozil was equally not happy with the way things have been going at the Emirates despite being frozen out of Arsenal's squad by Mikel Arteta. Mirror reports.
The German midfielder posted a broken heart and a crying face emoji on his official Twitter handle following the defeat at Goodison Park.
The 31-year-old is yet to play a match for the Gunners this season as he was left out of their Premier League and Europa League campaigns until January.
