- Germany international Mesut Ozil is the highest paid Arsenal superstar
- The 30-year-old earns £300,000 on weekly basis despite falling out of favour with his coach Unai Emery
- Ozil joined the north Londoners from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 in a deal worth €47m
Mesut Ozil may not be getting enough playing time at Arsenal under new boss Unai Emery this campaign, the German star earns as much as two other top players on a weekly basis.
The former Real Madrid attacker was missing in the Gunners' 1-0 defeat to West Ham United at the London Stadium.
Ozil according to leaked report earns £300,000 - the same amount both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£180,000) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£120,000) earn on a weekly basis.
The 30-year-old joined the north Londoners from Los Blancos in 2013 in a deal worth €47 million, and his current deal with the club is due to expire in 2021.
French star Alexandre Lacazette is the current third highest paid star at the Emirates Stadium despite recently joining them.
Both Petr Cech and Hector Bellerin are on £100,000 a week wage, while Nigerian star Alex Iwobi is among the lowest paid - with £30,000 a week.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Arsenal manager Unai Emery has insisted that leaving Mesut Ozil in his squad that suffered 1-0 defeat to West Ham United was based on tactical decision.
Declan Rice's lone strike was all the Hammers needed to beat the Gunners in the tough Premier League clash at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
Reports coming from the north Londoners' camp had it that the German star was yet to fully recover from a knee injury he suffered sometime back.
