The highest paid player at every Premier League club has been revealed

The Premier League features some of the world’s richest clubs, and therefore some of the world’s highest paid players.

The extortionate amount of revenue that the Premier League brings in from various avenues comercially and in TV is an indication of how well paid the players must be.

From £55,000 to £400,000, the wealth of clubs may range, but all players are well played across the league – here, we look at the highest paid player at each club, going into more depth with the highest earners overall.

Arsenal – Gabriel Jesus (£265,000)

The Gunners purchased the Brazilian forward from Manchester City in the summer, rewarding him with a bumper contract following their frontline clear-out, with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette being let go of in the months prior.

Aston Villa – Lucas Digne (£160,000 a week)

Bournemouth – Jefferson Lerma (£55,000 a week)

Brentford – Ben Mee (£55,000 a week)

Brighton – Adam Lallana (£90,000 a week)

Chelsea – Raheem Sterling (£325,000 a week)

Raheem Sterling was prized away from Manchester City in the summer having scored 131 goals in seven seasons for the Sky Blues and being one of the most prolific wingers in the Premier League. Chelsea decided to reward this with the biggest contract at the club, though he is yet to hit the ground running for the Blues.

Crystal Palace – Wilfried Zaha (£130,000 a week)

Everton – Abdoulaye Doucoure, Alex Iwobi & Yerry Mina (£120,000 a week)

Fulham – Bernd Leno (£90,000 a week)

Leeds United – Rodrigo (£100,000 a week)

Leicester – Jamie Vardy (£140,000 a week)

Liverpool – Mohamed Salah (£350,000 a week)

Last season’s Premier League top scorer and PFA player of the year was rewarded with a new contract in the summer, as Jurgen Klopp opted to keep the tricky Egyptian and sell Sadio Mane. Salah has been Liverpool’s most prolific player in recent history, only failing to hit 20 league goals once in the last 5 seasons.

Manchester City – Kevin De Bruyne (£400,000 a week)

Widely regarded as one of the best players in the world, it is no surprise that Kevin De Bruyne is the highest paid player in the Premier League. He has been the heartbeat of this Manchester City came since his signing in 2015, winning the PFA player of the year in 19/20 and 20/21, all while picking up four league titles in this time.

Manchester United – David De Gea (£375,000 a week)

The Spanish goalkeeper has been under intense scrutiny this season, as Erik ten Hag has tried to re-structure the team to build play out of the back with De Gea, who is not the best with the ball at his feet. He has also struggled to command the penalty area and claim crosses, but despite these shortcomings, his shot-stopping is nothing short of world-class and that was what earned him this current contract, which is due to run out in the summer.

Newcastle – Alexander Isak & Bruno Guimaraes (£120,000 a week)

Nottingham Forest – Dean Henderson (£100,000 a week)

Southampton – James Ward-Prowse (£100,000 a week)

Tottenham – Harry Kane (£200,000 a week)

Harry Kane is Tottenham’s star player and rumours of him moving on from Spurs surface every summer, as journalists and pundits feel like the 15/16, 16/17 and 20/21 Golden Boot winner is destined for greater things. The 29-year-old is yet to win a trophy in his career, and with time running out, it may be time for the England captain to move to a club challenging for titles, presumably on an even larger contract.

West Ham – Lucas Paqueta (£150,000 a week)

Wolves – Raul Jimenez & Joao Moutinho (£100,000 a week)
