Salah, Sancho, Sterling: The 30 highest-paid PL wingers as Luis Diaz nears Liverpool move

Luis Diaz is all set to become a Liverpool player.

The highly-rated Colombian winger will cost the Reds an initial fee of £37.5 million, which in today’s market is pretty cheap.

According to reports from Portuguese outlet SIC, per The Mirror, the deal for Diaz also includes a salary of only £56,000-a-week.

That’s a relatively low sum of money, which is further highlighted by the fact that 30 Premier League wingers will be earning more than him.

And thanks to Spotrac, we’ve provided the evidence to support that claim below.

So, let’s take a look at the 30 highest-paid wingers in the Premier League right now, with a number of Diaz’s soon-to-be Liverpool teammates making the cut…

If Diaz starts smashing in the goals straight away in a Liverpool shirt, he’ll no doubt be knocking on Jurgen Klopp’s door to ask for a pay rise…
