Mesut Ozil is still one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League, despite not featuring in a single game since the league's restart. However, there is one German star who pockets more than the attacking midfielder does.

Click through the gallery above to see the highest-paid German footballers, and their annual gross salary, according to Transfermarkt!

The 31-year-old was once again not in Mikel Arteta's squad for Arsenal's 2-1 FA Cup victory over Sheffield United on Sunday.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner has now been left out of the matchday squad twice and been placed as many times on the bench since football in England returned following the coronavirus-enforced break.

However, according to Transfermarkt, Ozil still earns a 20.5 million (R398 million) gross annual salary with the Premier League side, which is believed to be more than any other player at the club.

Ozil is in second place among the top-earning German stars in the game, with only Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos receiving more.

The Los Blancos pass master makes 21 million (R408 million) before deductions yearly in Spain, which is more than any other player born in Germany.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer completes the top three after his latest contract extension saw him agree to a deal worth 18 million (R350 million) a year, while Timo Werner is expected to receive a whopping 15.5 million (R305 million) per year at Chelsea – you can see the complete top 10 in gallery above!
