The 31 year old Frenchman is said to demanding £60k a week for 3 years but Everton are worried that Saha still seems to be prone to picking up injuries so such a lengthy deal will not provide value for money and would prefer a shorter deal with bonus payments.
Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all said to be monitoring Saha’s situation as he becomes a free agent in the summer and Wenger is said to be willing to again break his policy of not offering players over 30 more than 1 year contracts.
Despite various injuries ruling him out this season Saha has managed to score 12 times in 21 appearances including 1 against Arsenal as the Toffees lost 6-1 to Wenger’s men on the opening day of the season.
Wenger, who when asked about France’s World Cup squad last week, said of Saha,
‘When Saha plays 10 games on the trot you can compare him with any striker.’
thus a two year deal with an option to extend it by one could be on the cards for the former Man United hitman.
