Aubameyang signs: Who are the 10 highest-earning players in the Premier League?

Auba is the Premier League's highest earner

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has finally signed a new contract with Arsenal.

The future of the Gunners’ star player was up in the air for months, but he’s put all talk of a move away to bed by signing a three-year extension. 

It’s believed that the striker turned down two big offers from other clubs to stay in north London and yesterday, he explained that decision.

“I want to become an Arsenal legend, just like Thierry [Henry], [Ian] Wright, [Tony] Adams and [Dennis] Bergkamp,” Aubameyang said. 

“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.”

By signing his new deal, Aubameyang becomes Arsenal’s highest-paid player on a wage of over £350,000-per-week. 

Not only does that make him the Gunners top earner, but it also sees him pocket more money than anyone else in the Premier League too. 

Auba is the PL's highest earner

Check out the top 10 earners in England’s top-flight, per The Sun, below: 

10. Willian | Arsenal | £220k-per-week 

Willian makes the top 10

9. Sergio Aguero | Man City | £230k-per-week

Aguero is on the list

8. Anthony Martial | Man United | £250k-per-week

Martial's wage is high

7. Paul Pogba | Man United | £290k-per-week

Pogba's a high earner

6. Raheem Sterling | Man City | £300k-per-week

Sterling makes a mint

5. Kai Havertz | Chelsea | £310k-per-week

Havertz is in his debut season

4. Kevin De Bruyne | Man City | £320k-per-week

De Bruyne is on the list

3. David de Gea | Man United | £350k-per-week

De Gea takes his place

2. Mesut Ozil | Arsenal | £350k-per-week

Ozil is still making a killing

1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang | Arsenal | £350k-plus per week 

Auba tops the list

There’s an awful lot of money being made on that list which is, of course, dominated by players from the big sides.

Interestingly though, no Liverpool players make the top 10. You’ve got to respect the Premier League champions for having such a strict wage structure in place. 

But look how many Arsenal players are on the list. Three of the 10 highest-earners in the Premier League now play for the Gunners.  

Big things are expected at Arsenal this season

With so much money being spent, results are going to be expected. Finishing outside the top four may well be seen as nothing short of a failure this season.
