5. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – $113,000
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the rare player in the Bundesliga who is paid a wage equal to players in England and Spain. With 47 goals in 82 games for Borussia Dortmund, he is worth every penny. Aubameyang is known for his lightning pace, he was once clocked at 3.7 second for 30 meters, and he can play as either a central striker or a winger. Dortmund have built their team around the ability of the Gabonese international to worry the opposition defense with his speed and have thus turned down a number of huge money offers from clubs around Europe. Aubameyang recently broke the hold that Yaya Toure had on the African Footballer of the Year Award, becoming the first player from Gabon to take home the trophy.
