PSG target Guendouzi lowest-paid player per minute at Arsenal while Jenkinson is highest

CARL JENKINSON is the highest-paid player per minute at Arsenal this season – with Matteo Guendouzi the lowest.

The out-of-favour right-back, 27, is raking in an incredible £23,226 per single minute of Premier League action in 2018-19.

Meanwhile, tireless midfielder Guendouzi, 19, comparatively only takes home £688-a-minute, according to research from TheSportsman.com.

Jenkinson has played just 31 minutes in the top flight this term, a far cry from Guendouzi's 1,556.

The discrepancy between the highest and lowest per minute earners at Arsenal is even more than that of Manchester United.

At Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford is the lowest-paid star at £767 per minute – while top-earner Alexis Sanchez earns close to £16,000 per minute.


Premier League earnings: Winners and losers

Highest paid per-minute:

 

Pape Souare – £630,000 (£30,000 a week, played 1 minute)

Scott Dann – £480,000 (£60,000 a week, played 1 minute )

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou – £218,750 (£35,000 a week, played 4 minutes)

Gary Cahill – £123,810 (£100,000 a week, played 21 minutes)

Davide Zappacosta – £101,111 (£70,000 a week, played 18 minutes)


Lowest paid per-minute:

 

Declan Rice – £38 (£3,000 a week, played 2,026 minutes)

Denis Odoi – £109 (£8,900 a week, played 2,115 minutes)

Matt Doherty – £117 (£10,000 a week, played 2,219 minutes)

Ryan Sessegnon – £142 (£8,000 a week, played 1,462 minutes)

Sol Bamba – £162 (£14,000 a week, played 2,250 minutes)

But easily the biggest shock comes out of Chelsea – with Danny Drinkwater earning £2million already this season, despite not playing a single minute.

Nine other Premier League stars have shattered the £1m-barrier through not playing too, including Simon Mignolet and Eliaquim Mangala.

Despite Jenkinson's sky-high £23,226-a-minute tally, he's by no means the biggest winner in the Prem this season.

Crystal Palace star Pape Souare has earned £630,000 per minute, having played just ONE minute this season on his £30,000-a-week wages.

Scott Dann has earned £480,000 for his sole minute in the league this season – while Georges-Kevin Nkoudou has raked in £218,750 per minute at Tottenham.

And Guendouzi is not the most hard done by either – thanks to Declan Rice.

Earning just £3,000 per week before his pay boost in December and having played 2,026 Prem minutes in 2018-19, Rice is technically earning just £38-a-minute.

Denis Odoi has earned £109 for each of his 2,215 minutes played, while five other players including Ryan Sessegnon and Aaron Wan-Bissaka earn under £200 per minute.
