Since last year, Arsenal have been linked with a move for West Ham star striker Dimitri Payet. Latest reports indicate now that the Gunners are ready to finally sign him.
Last December, the 29-year-old French international invited interest from Arsenal after saying it would be fun to play for the Gunners.
Presently, Daily Star have published a report and claimed that Arsenal have moved in and open talks to hire the services of Payet. It was claimed the Frenchman wants to leave the Hammers this month and Manchester United are interested in signing the attacker as well.
Last season he was in brilliant form for West Ham and helped them finish 6th in the Premier League. This season, West Ham have been average under the management of Bilic and Payet has not been at his best too.
He was rated £35M and in 22 games already, the star striker has scored 3 goals and has provided 8 assists.
Nevertheless, the report stated further that the striker has snubbed all interest because he intend moving back to France to join Marseille.
However, we don’t think Arsene Wenger and the management will pay a huge sum to bring Payet who turns 30 come March into the Emirates.
