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.
