Mesut Ozil, who was previously one of the Premier League's highest-paid players, has now moved to Turkey, so who are the top earners in the English top flight in 2021?

Click through the gallery above to see the Premier League's top earners, and what they receive weekly, according to!

The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner officially left Arsenal to join Fenerbahce earlier this week, giving up his reported £350 000 (R7.2 million) weekly wages with the Gunners.

For a long time, Ozil was the English top flight's highest-paid player, but he was surpassed by Manchester United's David de Gea when the shot-stopper signed his latest contract extension.

The goalkeeper is believed to earn £375 000 (R7.8 million) per week at Old Trafford, with Kevin De Bruyne in second place with wages of £320 833 (R6.7 million).

The top three is completed by Raheem Sterling, who is understood to pocket £300 000 (R6.2 million) weekly, while Paul Pogba is one of four stars who follow with wages of £250 000 (R5.2 million) a week.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale is also on £250 000 after the Premier League side reportedly agreed to pay 40% of his whopping £600 000 (R12.4 million) wage at Real Madrid.
