Liverpool are on the brink of being crowned Premier League champions but just how much are their star players earning at Anfield?
Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool into a European powerhouse in just over three years and the most impressive season looms which could see them go unbeaten in the league.
It would be their first league title since 1990 and they have had to pay a lot to assign a quality team together on Merseyside.
Their current wage bill is estimated to be £110m-a-year after a £39m increase from last season given a number of contract extensions.

However, they still sit behind both Manchester United and Manchester City in third position spending £113.256m on salaries in the 19/20 season as revealed by Spotrac.
It may come as no surprise to see top goalscorer Mohamed Salah take home the most earning £200,000-a-week. But the Egyptian winger is not highest earner in the league and sits behind David de Gea, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Paul Pogba, Mesut Ozil, Anthony Martial and Sergio Aguero.
Roberto Firmino and van Dijk are joint-second on the list taking home a combined amount of £9.36m per year.
Despite claims they have brought their way to glory with Virgil Van Dijk’s and Allison’s arrival, their net spend is minimal since the German’s arrival.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Joe Gomez are among the lowest paid with the defenders on a basic annual salary of £2.08m, £2.6m and £1.456m.
All the team will likely earn more given bonuses and sponsorship deals, and the European triumph of last year against Tottenham.
