Arsenal have been placed as favorites to sign West Ham star Dmitri Payet by Bookmakers SkyBet, via HITC Sports.

West Ham started this season in poor form, currently sit one point above the relegation zone and their star player Payet is being linked with a move away from the club in January.

The Frenchman threw his future into doubt last month when he refused to rule out the possibility of moving to a top club in the coming transfer window.

And SkyBet has now placed Arsenal as favorites to sign the winger. The Bookmakers have slashed the odds on the French man moving to the Emirates from 20/1 to 5/1.

According to the Report, Manchester United are in the running to sign the winger and are placed at 8/1 to lure him to Old Trafford.

Payet had a wonderful debut season for West Ham last year and was one of the league’s best players but has failed to stop his team from struggling this year.

With the winger closing in on his 30th birthday, he could be open to a move to a big club because he might never get the opportunity again.

It is not as though we are short of attacking options, in short it is one of the strongest position in our squad and Wenger may have to allow one of our current attacking midfielders leave if we want to sign Payet.

However, considering Payet’s talents, he will be a quality addition to our squad but I don’t think there is anything concrete from our side at the moment.

 We will have to keep our finger’s crossed.
