Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man Utd: Who is the lowest-paid player at each Premier League club?

Lowest paid Premier League players

The Premier League really is the promised land for footballers when it comes to the amount of money they can earn.

If you can make it in the English top flight, then odds are your pockets will deepen significantly as you rake in the cash for plying your trade in one of football’s toughest theatres.

Up and down the country footballers make an absolute killing, earning more in a week than many would hope to earn in a lifetime.

However, well the cases of highly-paid professionals are well documented, there are still those who don’t absolutely plunder the cash despite the fact that they are contracted to a Premier League club.

For every Kevin De Bruyne (£400k per week) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£575k per week) you have a Jordan Zemura or Brennan Johnson.

Now, thanks to figures from Spotrac and The Sun, we have been able to identify the lowest paid player at each of the 20 Premier League clubs currently battling it out for domestic supremacy.

The lowest paid player at each Premier League club

  • Bournemouth: Jordan Zemura, £385 per week
  • Arsenal: Arthur Okonkwo, £1,538 per week
  • Aston Villa: Jacob Ramsey, £7,500 per week
  • Brentford: Mads Bech Sorensen, £4,000 per week
  • Brighton: Moises Caicedo, £3,500 per week

  • Chelsea: Armando Broja, £6,538 per week
  • Crystal Palace: Luke Plange, £5,385 per week
  • Everton: Neils Nkounkou, £4,423 per week
  • Fulham: Tyrese Francois, £978 per week
  • Leeds: Sam Greenwood, £1,346 per week

  • Liverpool: Sepp van den Berg, £5,000 per week
  • Manchester City: Cole Palmer, £13,462 per week
  • Manchester United: Teden Mengi, £3,462 per week

  • Nottingham Forest: Brennan Johnson, £2,308 per week
  • Southampton: Jan Valery, £2,000 per week
  • Tottenham: Brandon Austin, £1,538
  • West Ham: Conor Coventry, £4,321
  • Wolves: Conor Ronan, £769

In short, it’s better to be the lowest-paid player at Manchester City than it is to be the lowest-paid player at Bournemouth.

Cole Palmer’s £13,462 per week is a very handy sum of money in comparison to Jordan Zemura’s £385.

For the majority of the players on the list above, due to the fact that their professional careers are still in their infancy, there is still every opportunity to send those numbers sky-rocketing through the roof.

Like we said before, if you can make it big in the Premier League, then you’ll certainly be setting yourself up for life after it.
