Nicolas Pepe became the most expensive African footballer in history when he joined Arsenal, but how does his salary compare to the highest-paid African stars in England, including Mohamed Salah?
Click through the gallery above to see the top-earning African footballers in England, and how much they earn weekly, according to Spotrac.
Pepe joined Arsenal for a reported fee of €80 million (R1.33 billion) on Thursday, replacing Riyad Mahrez as the costliest African footballer in history.
In addition, the Ivory Coast winger, who joined the Gunners from LOSC Lille, also became Arsenal's most expensive signing ever, and one of the club's top earners.
According to The Sun, he pockets a whopping £140 000 (R2.5 million) in weekly wages in London, which is believed to make him the club's fifth highest-paid player.
In addition, Pepe is also among the three top-earning Africans in England, behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and his new teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who are both understood to receive £200 000 (R3.62 million) a week at their respective clubs.
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha follows with £130 000 (R2.35 million) a week, before Mahrez and Naby Keita complete the top six with wages of £120 000 (R2.16 million) a week. Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane, somewhat surprisingly, only earns £100 000 (R1.81 million) a week, despite his dominant performances in the 2018/19 campaign.
His colleague Joel Matip also pockets £100 000 per week, followed by Abdul Baba Rahman, who is on £86 000 (R1.56 million) a week after returning to Chelsea from his loan stint at Reims in France.
Pepe's Ivory Coast teammate Eric Bailly is on £80 000 (R1.48 million) a week at Manchester United, while Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi and Everton's Yannick Bolasie both reportedly pocket £75 000 (R1.36 million) weekly.
