The 10 Best Paid Africans In England

Mohamed Salah is arguably the best African footballer in the world at the moment, but where does he rank among the 10 highest paid African stars in the Premier League?

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see the 10 best paid African stars in England, and what they earn weekly, according to Total Sportek.

Liverpool's star Egyptian is currently having the season of his life, and it could get even better as the Reds are still in the UEFA Champions League, having drawn Roma in the semi-finals of the tournament.

With reported interest coming from Spanish giants Real Madrid, many Liverpool supporters might feel the only way to hang on to the 25-year-old is if the club offers him a bigger contract.

Reportedly earning about £120 000 (R2 million) a week in England, Salah is said to be the joint third highest paid African player in the Premier League, tied with Swansea's Wilfried Bony.

The Reds superstar is far away from being the best paid African player in the EPL, though, with Manchester City's Yaya Toure and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang earning much more than he does.

While the Citizens' Ivorian midfielder, who could very well leave England come June, is believed to be on a weekly wage of £220 000 (R3.7 million), Aubameyang is the second best paid African in the English top flight on £180 000 (R3 million) a week.

Below the aforementioned Salah and Bony is Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha with his reported wage of £110 000 (R1.8 million), while Sadio Mane follows in sixth place with weekly earnings of £90 000 (R1.5 million).

Swansea's Andre Ayew, Everton's Yannick Bolasie and Islam Slimani, who is on loan at Newcastle United from Leicester City, all reportedly earn £80 000 (R1.3 million) every week, while Manchester United's Eric Bailly is believed to be on £75 000 (R1.2 million) a week.

Do you think Salah deserves a bigger deal at Liverpool, or do you think he will be tempted to move to Real? Let us know in the comments section below.
