Going into your club merchandise shop with your mum and dad and choosing the player whose name you want on the back of your new, crisp, sweet-smelling shirt is a right of passage for every young football fan. And of course, that fresh print will be accompanied by the glaring number of that desired footballer. 

For the professional footballer himself, they may have realised the prestige that certain numbers at particular clubs carry. But which shirt numbers are ‘worth’ the most based on current earnings? Every week, the Premier League 20 pay out an estimated £35,264,143 in player wages. That equates to £1,835,762,920 a year.

We’ve tallied up all the estimated salaries of every Premier League player registered for the 2021/22 season - including those sent out on loan - to work out which shirt numbers have the most money attached to them, calculated by the amount those players earn. The results are provided by the combined total salary per week, the total yearly salary, then the average weekly and yearly by the number of players who wear that particular shirt number in the Premier League.

We have also handily provided you the highest earning Premier League player representative of each shirt number from 1 to 11. Have a look below.
