The highest earning player at each of the 20 Premier League clubs

Luke Shaw has made the headlines in recent days after he was awarded a whopping £195,000-a-week contract at Manchester United The English left-back has signed a five-year deal and many fans are surprised he has been handed such a pay-rise despite only really playing properly for the last few months However, it sums up the financial state of the Premier League.Clubs are able to splash ludicrous amounts on players these days But who is the highest paid players at each club in England’s top-flight? Well, here they are and there are some big surprises, per Mirror Mesut Ozil leads the way for the Gunners, earning an enormous £350,000-a-week after signing a new deal back in January The Cherries actually pay Jermain Defoe £100,000-a-week, far more than anyone else Ryan Fraser earns a third of what he does and Defoe hasn’t even started a game this season Both Jose Izquierdo and Jurgen Locadia lead the way on £45,000-a-week.After his goal scoring exploits, Glenn Murray should surely be on par Chris Wood, Jeff Hendrick, Steven Defour, Jack Cork, Robbie Brady and Tom Heaton are all joint top on £35,000-a-week Loanee Harry Arter is the highest earner at Neil Warnock’s side, although his actual wage has not been specified You guessed it, Eden Hazard.The Belgian currently earns £200,000-a-week, although that would almost double if he signs a new deal Wilfred Zaha wins this race with a huge wage of £130,000-a-week after signing a new deal Given his performances, his salary is a fair reflection.Gylfi Sigurdsson and summer signing Bernard both bring in £150,000-a-week at the Toffees Not bad.Summer arrival and top goal scorer Aleksandr Mitrovic is the highest earner at Craven Cottage on £50,000-a-week Without a doubt the most ridiculous one on here.Alex Pritchard somehow brings in £110,000-a-week, despite scoring once in 19 appearances Jamie Vardy even earns less than Pritchard, with the prolific English striker pocketing £100,000-a-week Mohamed Salah was rewarded for his record-breaking season in 2017/18 with a lovely new contract, earning him £200,000-a-week The champions have a lot of high earners, but Kevin De Bruyne tops them all on £350,000-a-week No Premier League player has ever earned more than Alexis Sanchez, with the Chilean pocketing £500,000-a-week The Magpies barely spent in the summer and it reflects in their wage bill, with Jonjo Shelvey earning the most on £70,000-a-week Mark Hughes’ struggling side send £80,000 to Manolo Gabbiadini each week, despite the Italian barely ever playing Harry Kane’s new deal saw him more-than-double his salary £200,000-a-week.Well earned Troy Deeney can feel hard done by, as he’s beaten to the punch by his striker partner Andre Gray, who earns £70,000-a-week Another huge shock, as Javier Hernandez somehow brings in £140,000-a-week despite barely ever playing They may look like an established Premier League side already, but they’re lagging behind in wages, with Ruben Neves the highest earner on £50,000-a-week
