Mesut Ozil and David De Gea – both from Arsenal and Manchester United respectively – top the Premier League Clubs’ Highest Earners charts when it comes to the Premier League’s highest earners.
But who are the other highest paid players at Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham and the rest?
GoalBall has extracted a list of the highest earners at all 20 Premier League clubs, using data from spotrac.com.
Premier League Clubs’ Highest Earners
Wolves – Joao Moutinho & Rui Patricio (£100,000pw)
Wolves desperate needed of tying their best players down, which is why they have offered six-figure deals to two of their biggest stars.
West Ham – Andriy Yarmolenko (£115,000pw)
On those wages, the Ukranian winger back will need to improve his fitness to be considered a decent investment.
Watford – Abdoulaye Doucoure & Andre Gray (£70,000pw)
While Doucoure has consistent excellent performances to show for his high salary, Gray is yet to live up to his potential since a big-money move from Burnley.
Tottenham Hotspur – Harry Kane (£200,000pw)
It is no surprise Harry Kane is the highest earner at his club.
Southampton – Danny Ings (£75,000pw)
Ings joined Southampton from Liverpool, making him the club’s highest earner.
Sheffield United – Phil Jagielka (£50,000pw)
With Chris Wilder’s small budgets in the division, Phil Jagielka – their marquee summer signing – tops this list.
Norwich – Sam Byram (£30,000pw)
Norwich were unwilling to invest heavily in the squad, which is likely to see several of their best players push for a transfer this summer.
Newcastle – Jonjo Shelvey (£70,000pw)
Shelvey was handed a new deal in November last year but has since been in and out of the first XI.
Manchester United – David de Gea (£375,000pw)
United’s goalkeeper tops the list of highest earning Premier League players, due to his being among the most recent ‘Big Six’ players to get a new deal.
Manchester City – Kevin de Bruyne (£350,000pw)
The Belgian is the joint-third highest earner in the Premier League alongside Ozil, according to spotrac.com.
Liverpool – Mohamed Salah (£200,000pw)
The Egyptian forward signed a five-year contract in July 2018 to make him the club’s highest paid player.
Leicester City – Jamie Vardy (£140,000pw)
As a bonafide Leicester legend, it is no surprise Vardy is the club’s highest paid player.
Everton – Bernard & Yerry Mina (£120,000pw)
Two recent signings, Bernard and Mina, are both on high wages but won’t be the biggest earners for much longer.
Crystal Palace – Wilfried Zaha (£130,000pw)
To ward off interest from top clubs, Zaha has been able to negotiate to become their highest earner.
Chelsea – N’Golo Kante (£290,000pw)
The Frenchman’s latest contract, signed in 2018, was reportedly a record-breaking high, according to Goal.com.
Burnley – Ben Mee (£55,000pw)
Burnley gave the highest wages to one of their most loyal servants, a centre-back.
Brighton – Pascal Gross, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, & Martin Montoya (£50,000pw)
Jahanabakhsh has been a total flop, and as you would have thought their record signing is also their highest earner, alongside Gross and Montoya. The latter two have performed relatively well this season under Graham Potter.
Aston Villa – Jack Grealish (£100,000pw)
The Villa captain’s latest deal, struck in July and worth six figures according to the Birmingham Mail, will be topped soon.
Arsenal – Mesut Ozil (£350,000pw)
Ozil will enter the last year of his deal this summer, and on inflated wages is unlikely to be offered a new one.
AFC Bournemouth – Callum Wilson (£60,000pw)
Wilson was given a new deal in July 2019 by Bournemouth.
