The Premier League is arguably the most competitive league in the world and without doubt the richest league in the sport, courtesy of the money they get through television revenue and due to the staggering amount of fans that follow the league.

Clubs in England are some of the richest in the sport and hence can attract top players by offering them high wages and salaries. Here, we take a look at the five highest-paid goalkeepers in the English top-flight.

1. David de Gea (Manchester United) - £375,000-a-week

David de Gea might have had a poor last couple of years, but there is no doubt that the Spaniard has been one of Manchester United's most important players in the recent past.

The 30-year-old however continues to remain the club's No.1 goalkeeper, and his performances so far this season show that he still has a lot to offer the Red Devils.

2. Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea) - £155,000-a-week

Kepa Arrizabalaga is the most expensive goalkeeper in football history, with the Spaniard struggling to live up to his price tag and failing to justify the money that Chelsea paid for him.

Kepa is only 26-years-old and still has time to improve on his performances and ensure that he has a future at Stamford Bridge.

3. Alisson Becker (Liverpool) - £150,000-a-week

Widely considered to be the best goalkeeper in the world, Alisson has been a revelation for Liverpool and has put on consistent performances ever since he joined them in 2018.

The Brazilian is one of the most important players for the club and he will need to continue his good form if the Reds are to challenge for trophies this season.

4. Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City) - £130,000-a-week

Kasper Schmeichel has throughout his career lived up his talent and has fulfilled his potential, as seen by his brilliant displays for both club and country.

The Danish keeper has already achieved iconic status at Leicester City, and it will be interesting to see for how many more years he remains with the club.
