Members of the Unai Emery's squad will be due substantial cash bonuses as a result of clauses included in their individual playing contracts linked to winning European trophies.
Sportsmail understands players will be entitled to payments ranging between £100,000 and £500,000 if they lift their first continental trophy since winning the now defunct European Cup Winners Cup in 1994.
So victory could cost the club up to £10million - a price they would be happy to pay to secure a long-awaited European trophy.
Beating Chelsea in Azerbaijan on Wednesday week would not only come as a huge boost to the club in a footballing sense, it would also arrive as significant fillip financially for the club, despite the prospect of forking out millions in bonus payments.
Emery has a guaranteed transfer budget of around £40million this summer, but winning the Europa League - which would earn qualification into next season's Champions League - would increase that sum significantly.
Notably, England's Arsenal and Chelsea will play at the final match to be held at Baku Olympic Stadium on May 29. The match starts at 23:00. Arsenal won the UEFA Cup trophy in 1994.
