Arsenal risk squad revolt over big name transfer plans

Arsenal are facing a squad revolt over their big name transfer pursuits. The Daily Star Sunday says all recent contract renewals at the club have included a clause which sees wages cut by a fifth if the north Londoners miss out on Europe's top club competition this season.

Arsenal could waive the demand as they try to bring in big-name players like Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez.

But that would be likely to cause a major stir with Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson who signed new deals last season which are believed to include the clause.
