Top ten highest paid Prem stars as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signs mega-money new deal

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG is reportedly the highest-paid player in the Premier League after penning a new deal at Arsenal.

The 31-year-old has ended speculation over his future by signing a three-year deal at the Emirates.

Commenting on his stay, he said: "I want to become an Arsenal legend, just like Thierry, Wrighty, Adams and Bergkamp.

"I want to leave a legacy, this is where I belong. This is my family.

"We have something exciting here and I believe the best is to come for Arsenal."

Aubameyang was previously on around £200k-a-week in North London, but Arsenal have vastly improved terms on his new deal.

It has been widely claimed that his contract will see him pocket more than £350,000-a-week.


This has seen him not only become the Gunners' top earner above Mesut Ozil – but the best paid individual in the top-flight.

Following Aubameyang in the list is his Arsenal team-mate Ozil who rakes in £350k-a-week.

He is joint second with Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea who earns the same amount following his new deal in September.

Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is the next thanks to his £320,000 weekly wage at the Etihad.

Chelsea's club-record signing Kai Havertz, 21, is fifth as he takes home an incredible £310k every week.

De Bruyne's City team-mate Raheem Sterling is sixth with £300,000 having signed a five-year deal in 2018.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is seventh with £290,000, followed by his French compatriot Anthony Martial who pockets £250k.

City striker Sergio Aguero is ninth with £230k, with Arsenal forward Willian completing the top ten as he takes home £220k-a-week.
