Kai Havertz has earned over £7.4million since his summer move from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea which has seen him score just one Premier League goal all season, The Sun.

The Germany international is currently the highest earner at Stamford Bridge with a massive £310,000-per-week take home.

Arsene Wenger names 3 Chelsea players to blame for Blues' draw vs Southampton

Havertz's international teammate Timo Werner is also learning much but not returning with much goals this season.

The £270,000-per-week striker has managed to score just five league goals and netted his fifth against Southampton after 100 days and 1,000 minutes of action.

However, there has been return on investment from the likes of Mason Mount and Edouard Mendy.

Mount has scored six goals and created six so far this season and he is currently Chelsea's best player but only earns £88,000-per-week.

On the other hand, Mendy who presently earns £75,000-per-week has justified himself since his summer move from Lille.

Other big earners include £50m Ben Chilwell who takes home £190k-per-week, American Christian Pulisic who bags £158,000 kand Kepa Arrizabalaga whose weekly wages is at £150,000.

The rest are skipper Cesar Azpilicueta £145,000-per-week, N'Golo Kante £144,000-per-week and Callum Hudson-Odoi - £120,000-weekly.

Jorginho, Olivier Giroud and Thiago Silva are all on £110,000 while Marcos Alonso, Reece James, Mateo Kovacic, Antonio Rudiger and Hakim Ziyechalso earn £100,000-per-week.
