It is no surprise that his weekly salary of £230,000 ranks him among the top ten highest paid players in EPL.
8. Anthony Martial
It might be surprising to see the French forward listed among the highest-paid footballers in the EPL.
This surprise could arise from the fact that the Manchester United attacker who was signed from Monaco in 2015 hasn’t been living up to his current weekly salary of £250,000.
Lately, Martial has been battling with form and fitness, though he was very instrumental to the red devils last season, helping them to finish third in the premier league.

6. Raheem Sterling
Raheem Sterling has been very sensational and indispensable for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
After Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were limited by Injury, City had to rely on Raheem Sterling who no doubt has rewarded Guardiola for his faith in him, which resulted in the increment of the winger’s weekly wages to £300,000 making him one of the highest paid players in the EPL.
5. Kai Havertz
Kai Havertz happens to be the sixth player that was signed by Chelsea FC, one of the richest clubs in the world, at the beginning of the 2020/2021 campaign.
It was his outstanding display, creativity, eye for goal, and pinpoint passes that promoted Chelsea to come for his signature for a fee of £70 million with a weekly pay of £310,000.
Unfortunately for the German play maker, he has been battling with form since joining the Blues, though he announced his presence initially with a hat-trick when Chelsea locked horns with Barnsley in the Carabao cup.
4. Kevin De Bruyne
Kevin De Bruyne is regarded as one of the best midfield maestri both in Europe and in the Premier League.

3. Peirre Emerick Aubaumeyang
Pierre Emerick Aubaumeyang has been sensational for the Arsenal football club since joining the Gunners.

2. Mesut Ozil
Mesut Ozil who is currently frozen out of Mikel Arteta’s squad is enjoying a staggering £350,000 weekly.
Since the arrival of Mikel Arteta, Ozil has fallen down the pecking order not making a single appearance for the Gunners due to the strained relationship that exists between the German playmaker and Arsenal hierarchy because he refuses to take pay in his weekly wage when the world of football was hit by COVID-19, affecting the financial status of many clubs in the elite division.
Even though he has not made a single appearance for the club, Mesut Ozil still enjoys his weekly £350,000 salary thereby making him the third highest-paid player in the English Premier League.
