Chelsea and Arsenal are the two clubs in the English Premier League that have been very busy this summer. Some top players from other leagues who have joined English football are Ivan Perisic, Darwin Nunez, Kalidou Koulibaly and Lisandro Martinez.
The fact that the English Premier League is the richest football league indicates that the players are highly paid. Some of the Premier League summer signings are among the highest-paid players in the league.
This article will look at the top five highest-paid Premier League signings this summer.
5. Jesse Lingard
Jesse Lingard was among the first players to leave Manchester United immediately after the opening of the summer transfer window. Top European teams targeted Lingard after he became a free agent.
However, the England international surprised football fans as he joined Nottingham Forest. One of the reasons Lingard joined Nottingham Forest was the huge amount of money offered to him wages.
The newly promoted Premier League club offered the playmaker a contract of one year. Lingard will be earning a weekly salary of 200,000 euros at Nottingham Forest.
Nottingham Forest have been away from the English Premier League for 23 years. They want to consolidate their position in the league next season, and that’s why they signed a top player like Jesse Lingard.
4. Gabriel Jesus
Gabriel Jesus joined Arsenal several days after the summer transfer window. The former Manchester City forward has already played in several pre-season friendlies and proved he is worth the 45 million euros Arsenal spent on him.
Gabriel Jesus is one of the highest-paid Premier League signings this summer. His wages have almost tripled after joining Arsenal from Manchester City. The Gunners pay Gabriel Jesus 265,000 every week.
A quality player like Gabriel Jesus deserves to have a fat bank account. By the time his contract with Arsenal ends, the Brazilian will be among the richest footballers.
Arsenal fans believe Gabriel Jesus will continue with his amazing performance in the friendlies next season. Jesus has already scored four goals in four appearances for the Gunners this summer holiday. He scored two goals on his debut.
3. Kalidou Koulibaly
The name Kalidou Koulibaly cannot be left out when top defenders are mentioned. The Blues needed to sign a top centre-back like Kalidou after Antonio Rudiger left for Real Madrid on a free transfer.
Chelsea offered the Senegalese international a four-year contract with a weekly salary of 295,000. Kalidou will be one of the highest-paid players at Chelsea.
2. Raheem Sterling
Raheem Sterling is undoubtedly one of the best wingers in the world. Chelsea completed Raheem Sterling’s move from Manchester City several days after the opening of the transfer window. Sterling joined the Blues for 47.5 million euros.
The 27-year-old remains among the highest-paid players in the English Premier League. The Blues pay Sterling a whopping 325,000 every week. Sterling deserves the huge wages due to his output on the pitch and title-winning experience.
The talented winger is the highest-paid Chelsea player after Romelu Lukaku left the club this summer. Big Rome returned to Inter Milan on loan.
1. Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland did not make headlines this summer like he did last summer. Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund had already reached an agreement earlier that Haaland would join the Cytizens.
The youngster also wanted to play in the English Premier League for Manchester City next season. Haaland completed his move to Manchester City for around 51 million euros.
He signed a five-year deal with the 2021-22 English Premier League champions. Haaland will be earning 375,000 euros weekly for the next five years.
However, he has not overthrown Kevin De Bruyne as the highest-paid Manchester City star. De Bruyne earns 400,000 euros every week at Manchester City.
