Premier League stars linked with Saudi Arabia moves and the mind-boggling money they could earn

Saudi Arabia are taking over the transfer window this summer, with many Premier League stars moving to the Middle East.

N’Golo Kante was the first to move and is set to earn six times his Blues wage as he joins Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in the Middle East.

Ruben Neves and Kalidou Koulibaly have also been confirmed to be making the switch to the Saudi Pro League.

And with more and more players attracting interest, takes a look at the Premier League players linked to a move and how much they could earn. 

Roberto Firmino

Liverpool star Firmino is on the brink of joining Al Ahli following the end of his contract at Anfield.

The Brazilian is set to sign a lucrative three-year deal in Saudi Arabia as he signs as a free agent.

He had also been a reported target for Barcelona but looks to have opted for a move to the Middle East.

Hakim Ziyech

Ziyech is one of many Chelsea players linked with a move to join Kante in Saudi Arabia. 

And the Moroccan is edging ever closer to sealing the switch after reportedly signing a contract with Al Nassr. 

He will earn a reported £10m-a-season which would double his current wage at Stamford Bridge.

Edouard Mendy 

talkSPORT understands that Chelsea are open to selling Mendy this summer and he is now set to move on. 

The goalkeeper is also looking more and more likely to be moving to Saudi Arabia with a fee and personal terms reportedly agreed with Al Ahli. 

He will sign a three-year contract and is expected to be earning a lot more than his current salary in the Premier League. 

Kyle Walker

talkSPORT understands that Man City right-back Walker is attracting interest from Saudi Arabia this summer. 

The defender is weighing up his future at the Etihad Stadium, with Sheffield United looking at bringing him back to his hometown club. 

Thomas Partey 

Arsenal midfielder Partey is rumoured to be heading towards a move away this summer, with Saudi Arabia a potential destination. 

If the 30-year-old does make the switch to the Middle East, he would be in for a huge pay rise, with the Gunners star likely to be handed a similar contract to his fellow Premier League companions.

Bernardo Silva 

Silva’s future at Man City has been in doubt over the last couple of seasons with Barcelona and PSG interested. 

However, the first approach has come from Saudi Arabia who have offered him a lucrative deal to try and pry him away from the treble winners. 

But the Portuguese international has reportedly turned the offer of an incredible salary down. 

Callum Hudson-Odoi 

According to reports, Hudson-Odoi is another Chelsea player to be targeted by Saudi Arabia this summer. 

The winger, who spent last season on loan at Bayer Leverkusen, is said to have been approached by multiple clubs in the Middle East. 

And with his role at Stamford Bridge uncertain, he may decide to make the switch and earn himself a big pay rise in the process. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 

Aubameyang has not had the best of times back in the Premier League with Chelsea and is set to leave again this summer.

Barcelona are rumoured to be interested in having the striker return to the club while Saudi Arabia have also made an offer. 

He is already on a reported £160,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge so the offer to move to the Middle East would be presumed to be higher than that.
