Exiled Arsenal star Mesut Ozil continues to top Arsenal’s wage bill despite not playing for the club since March.
Mikel Arteta did secure a new long-term deal for club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of the 2020/21 season kick off, with the Gabonese international joining Ozil in the over £200,000 weekly wage bracket.
Summer signings Thomas Partey and Willian have come straight into the squad on higher wages than any of Arteta’s longer serving stars, with Partey, Aubameyang and Ozil all earning a minimum of a £1million per month at the Emirates Stadium.
