England stars Bukayo Saka and Mason Mount are undoubtedly two of the Premier League’s most hyped young players.
Arsenal winger Saka at the tender age of 20 is already his side’s talisman and has made over 100 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners.
Cross city rival Mount, 23, similarly rose through the ranks of his club’s academy to become one of Chelsea’s most important players, even chiming in with an assist in the Champions League final last year.
Ask any fan of their respective clubs and you will be told that their value – in terms of both skill and sentiment – is priceless.
But that does not appear to be the case – at least in the eyes of the club hierarchies – as both players earn considerably less than several elite gamers.
That’s particularly true with regards to world’s richest gamer N0tail, otherwise known as BigDaddy or Johan Sundstein.
Sundstein, 28, is a Danish professional gamer for Esports organisation OG, where he won The International tournaments for multiplayer battle arena game Dota 2 in 2018 and 2019.
N0tail boasts 232,000 followers on streaming site twitch, but even more impressive is the whopping prize money he has accumulated during his career.
His estimated £5.2million in earnings puts him at the helm of esports and gaming, and seemingly ahead of the brightest England football internationals.
Despite his impressive contribution of ten goals in 21 games for the Gunners this season, Saka reportedly earns just £1.56million-per-year at the Emirates on his current £30,000-a-year contract.

Meanwhile Mount, who already has 26 appearances for his country, is massively underpaid at around £3million-a-year.
The midfielder signed an estimated £76,000-a-week contract back in July 2019 before he made his first-team debut for the Blues.
However, he quickly outgrew his role and subsequently his salary, which puts him 17th in the list of Chelsea’s highest earners.
