Arsenal target Dimitri Payet has dropped a huge hint that he would be open to a move to the Emirates in the winter transfer window should Wenger firm up his interest.
Wenger who is a big fan of the French winger is reportedly monitoring the player with a view to signing him in the winter transfer window.
West Ham have struggled to replicate their fine form of last season and are currently down the bottom half of the table, just five points away from the relegation zone and unless their fortunes improve in the new year, they could find themselves in the relegation battle.
Payet who showed he was one of the best playmakers in the league last season has now revealed the situation at the club isn’t good for his status and is open to a move away.
The winger also revealed his admiration for Arsenal, claiming he would fit in at the Emirates easily.
“I read that Wenger considers me the missing piece of the Arsenal’s game, but he’s never told me that!” Payet told RMC.
“We conceded five or six at home against them. When you see them playing, as a technical player, you could only have fun in that team. They’re candidates for the title every year.”
Payet will definitely be a quality signing for Arsenal and obviously will be an upgrade to our current midfielders except Ozil but he wouldn’t come cheap. We will have to part with huge bucks to sign him and whether Wenger will be willing to spend big in January is another question.
Wenger appears very happy with his squad but a player like Payet with all his qualities will be too good to turn down.
