Aubameyang’s reported salary is among the highest in Arsenal’s squad, with reports in the Express suggesting he is pocketing weekly wages worth £180 000 (R3 million).
In so doing, he is currently only beaten by Alexandre Lacazette, who is understood to earn £200 000, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan completes the top three with £170 000 (R2.9 million).
Mesut Ozil follows with £140 000 (R2.4 million) in fourth place, even though reports by BBC and Bild suggest the German has already agreed to a new £350 000 (R5.9 million). However, the Gunners are yet to officially announce Ozil’s contract extension.
Sead Kolasinac is understood to pocket £140 000 as well, while Aaron Ramsey follows with £110 000 (R1.8 million), which is £10 000 (R168 000) more than Petr Cech and Hector Bellerin, who reportedly sit on £100 000 (R1.7 million) per week.
Granit Xhala, Jack Wilshere, Skhodran Mustafi and Santi Cazorla complete Arsenal’s highest paid players with £90 000 (R1.5 million) weekly.
