Arsenal have started to pay their stars big money

13-time league winners, Arsenal, are unequivocally one of the bigger teams in England. The Gunners have been represented by some astonishing talent over the years, and the club is still home to some wonderful stars with exorbitant potential.

For the longest time, Arsenal were a club that didn't indulge their stars with heavy pay packages. However, over time, just like with most other big clubs, Arsene Wenger and the management eventually accepted that the best players need to be paid what they're worth - which in the currently inflated market, is a tad bit more than their weight in gold.

In recent times, Arsenal have strayed from their long-term policy on wage structuring, and have uncharacteristically pinned massive paychecks on their prized possessions. With that said, here is a look at the list of wages earned by 20 first-team Arsenal players at the moment:

#20 Rob Holding (Defender) - £25,000/week

Rob Holding will hope to play a lot more in the future

Contracted until: 30/06/2020

Signed from Bolton Wanderers ahead of last season, Arsenal's 22-year-old defender, Rob Holding has shown plenty of promise in the opportunities that have been afforded to him. Last season, Holding predominantly played in the FA Cup, eventually helping Arsenal lift the title for the 3rd time in 4 seasons.

With Per Mertesacker not growing any younger, Holding could become a crucial part of this Arsenal side in the foreseeable future.

Plenty of potential, eh?

#19 Alex Iwobi (Midfielder) - £30,000/week

One for the future?

Contracted until: 30/06/2020

Slowly rising to prominence, Alex Iwobi may not be a regular starter at Arsenal, yet, but he's beginning to stake a claim for it. Having joined Arsenal in 2015, the Nigerian only made 21 appearances across all competitions, most of which were off the bench.

In the 2016-17 season, he started featuring more prominently as Arsene Wenger's trust in him had seemingly been built enough, and subsequently made 38 appearances in all competitions. Notably, he was used regularly in Arsenal's 2016-17 FA Cup campaign, as the Gunners went on to lift the title, thus bestowing Iwobi with a winner's medal.

Iwobi has only played 2 full Premier League games this campaign and will look to cement a place for himself in Arsenal's starting 11.

Certainly deserves more game time, doesn't he?
