Click through the gallery above to see Arsenal’s highest paid players, and how much they earn a week, according to the Express.

The African superstar joined the the Premier League side on deadline day, becoming the club’s most expensive transfer in history and also breaking the record for the biggest deadline day deal in history.

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.
