​Arsenal still in player talks over wage reductions

Arsenal have confirmed talks remain ongoing with its players over wages and how they can "support their club in an appropriate way" during the coronavirus crisis, reports Sky Sports.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Arsenal confirmed the club remains in "productive" discussions with its players over the issue of wages.

"Over the past 10 days we have been in discussions with them around the potential financial challenges ahead, and how we are planning for those now," the statement read.

"These are productive and ongoing conversations around how our players might support their club in an appropriate way.

"We have not and will not make any comment on this matter until these private discussions have concluded."

Arsenal's executive team have "volunteered to waive more than a third" of their pay for the next 12 months in an effort to control costs during the crisis.
