Musazilla has compiled a list of Ghana's highest earners in the English Premier League.
Thomas Partey is first on the list, as he earns the most of any Ghanaian currently playing in the English Premier League. Partey, who joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid in the summer, is the club's joint highest earner, alongside Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Both players are paid £250,000 (pounds) per week, which translates to £13,000,000 per year. Since joining the North London side, the 27-year-old has only made 16 appearances for the club.
