Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah are arguably two of the best African footballers in the world, but where do they rank among the 10 highest-paid African stars in England's top division?

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

Despite a difficult start to the season, Liverpool's Salah remains a constant threat due to his pace and goalscoring ability. Following Yaya Toure's exit from the Premier League, the Egyptian is now the highest-paid African player in England, on £200 000 (R3.7 million) a week, while Arsenal's Aubameyang, a Gabon international, is believed to be on a whopping weekly wage of £180 000 (R3.4 million) at the Gunners.

The 29-year-old scored twice for Unai Emery's side in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night, taking his tally to three goals for the season so far.

New Liverpool signing Naby Keita, who has impressed since his arrival in England, is said to be earning £120 000 (R2.2 million) every week at the Reds, while Manchester City's record signing Riyad Mahrez is believed to be on the same wage at the Citizens.

Fifth on the list is Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha. The Ivorian international earns about £110 000 (R2 million) a week at the club that he began his top-flight career at.
