Arsenal highest earners with Mesut Ozil SECOND highest-paid player despite completing Fenerbahce transfer in January

MESUT OZIL is still Arsenal's second highest player despite leaving in the January transfer window.

The 32-year-old left the Emirates earlier this year and moved to Fenerbahce.

But the Gunners agreed to pay 90 per cent of his £350,000-a-week deal until it ends this summer, reports say.

And that means – incredibly – that Ozil isstill Arsenal's second highest paid player.

Only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang earns more than him in north London after signing his new deal last September.

Aubameyang pulls in £350,000 a week, while Arsenal are paying Ozil £315,000 a week.

In third place is Brazilian forward Willian on £220k a week.

Then comes Alexandre Lacazette on £182k, with club-record signing Nicolas Pepe completing the top five with a £140,000-a-week contract.

Brazilian defender David Luiz follows with £125k, while right-back Hector Bellerin is seventh on £110k.


The leading ten is completed by three players on £100k – Sead Kolasinac, Bernd Leno and Granit Xhaka.

Ozil played just six times for his new club before surfing ankle ligament damage.

The 32-year-old hasn't played since March 4 when he went down injured against Antalyaspor.
