Premier League fans were finally able to catch their breath after the summer transfer window.
During one of the most chaotic months in the history of the sport, England’s top flight saw some of the best players in the world come to their shores with Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku leading the way.
However, recruiting some of the best talent in the industry does not come cheap and, as we have already explored here at GIVEMESPORT, these measures have led to major salary developments.
The best earnings in the Premier League
In fact, the past few weeks alone have changed the face of the Premier League’s highest-paid XI with players like Jack Grealish, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho all pocketing big bucks.
But now that every transfer through the Premier League is on hold until the New Years, we wanted to take a closer look at the biggest incomes across the division.
BEST AND WORST TRANSFER RANKING (Football Terrace)
To achieve this, we decided to nominate the highest paid player from each Premier League club, according to the data collected by spotrac.
It’s impossible to know for sure how much Premier League players make with different sources giving different accounts, but we are sticking to the spotrac numbers for any semblance of consistency.
Best income in Premier League clubs
And naturally, with the world of football not necessarily being fair, it’s pretty clear to say that the person who wins the most at each of the 20 clubs isn’t necessarily their top performing star.
However, enough of the winks, nods and hints, as you can check out the players who have allegedly pocketed the biggest salaries at their respective Premier League clubs below:
Arsenal: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – £ 250,000 per week
Aston Villa: Danny Ings – £ 120,000 per week
Brentford: Pontus Jansson and David Raya – £ 25,000 per week
Brighton & Hove Albion: Adama Lallana – £ 90,385 per week
Burnley: Ben Mee – £ 55,000 per week
Chelsea: Romelu Lukaku – £ 325,000 per week
Crystal Palace: Wilfried Zaha – £ 130,000 per week
Everton: Yerry Mina – £ 120,000 per week
Leeds United: Raphinha – £ 63,500 per week
Leicester City: Jamie Vardy – £ 140,000 per week

Some surprising starters
Talk about a mixed bag, right?
While it’s undeniable that De Bruyne, Van Dijk and Ronaldo deserve their highest paid status, it’s much harder to make the same argument for Mina, Lallana, Walcott and Yarmolenko.
Perhaps the most confusing result of all is that Joelinton pocketed the most money from Newcastle, although he failed to justify his £ 40million transfer fee with just six Premier League goals.
However, all that being said, anyone with the hard work and talent to reach the highest level in football deserves to earn a lot of money which has become commonplace in the sport.
So, of course, it might make sense for players like Yves Bissouma, James Ward-Prowse and Michail Antonio to be on the roster, but life, let alone football, isn’t really like that.
