We shall be walking you through the lane of the hottest question we’ve been receiving quite recently and the question is, who is the Highest Paid Nigerian Footballer in Premier League 2018, his salary and some facts about him.

The highest paid footballer in Nigeria is Manchester City young star, Kelechi Iheanacho. He’s turned the most highest earning Super Eagles star in the English Premier so far.

Before Ighalo had the honour of being the most costly Nigerian player, it was already held by ex-Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel for a long time after the Blues sprinkled out €20m to secure his services from Lyn Oslo, with Manchester United also compensated.

The third and fourth most costly transfers involving Nigerian players were completed in the last thirteen months.

Previous Premier League champs Leicester City signed Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi in addition to Iheanacho for €19.5 million and €17.6 million respectively. The costliest Nigerian defender in history is Taribo West, on account of his €12 million switch from Auxerre to Inter Milan in June 1997.
