Arsenal Are Favorites to Agree €41million Star Signing

Dimitri Payet was brilliant for the Hammers last season and for France at the European Championships. The French international deservedly made it into the PFA Team of the Year and UEFA Euro 2016 Team of the Tournament.

Last summer, numerous top clubs were interested in luring the 29-year-old star but he opted to stay with West Ham.

The Hammers have been inconsistent this season and once again the Les Bleus playmaker is in the lime light as we close in on the January transfer window. Lately, Payet has himself claimed that it could be fun to be part of the Gunners team (Express).

Now, according to the bookies, Arsenal are favorites to sign the versatile French international. The North Londoners are leading the likes of Manchester United and Marseille to sign Payet in the winter transfer window (Express via SkyBet).

The former Lille star can play anywhere in the attack and will largely amplify the quality of Arsenal’s already brilliant offense.

This season, in 19 appearances, Payet has directly contributed in no fewer than 11 goals (3 goals and 8 assists). As per reports (Mirror), he is rated around 35 million pounds (€41million).

In your opinion, should Wenger splash the cash to sign Payet?

    Yes, I do believe that they need him and plus Lukaku.
    If average striker like Giroud playing for arsenal scores what about a top striker…
    Having Giroud arsenal on squad arsenal is like playing with 10 man until he scores, please he must be sold but the problem is who is going to buy him.
    Giroud, Walcott wont give arsenal any trophy.

    That will be a great addition to Arsenal squad, if only our stingy manager put in for this playmaker. His combination with the like mesut and Alexis will make the team be more solid and strong

    Yes he must hand in the cash an look for another defenders that can replace the likes of Monreal and Gabriel

    Wenger’s going to pay 35 m quid for a 29 yo ? Behave. And Carlos above, if it weren’t for Giroud’s goals this season we’d be lower than the Spuds. Even injured and off the bench. This kind of blog always attracts know nothings who comment get rid of the player we have and replace him with x, y or z. Like Lukaku would be the best the club could do….

    Will never happen,no resale value.

    Splashing cash on him wouldn’t be a bad deal though, but I don’t see it happening with Wenger being unnecessarily frugal when it comes to deals of this like

    Wenger will not buy Payet ( 29) but team needs Giroud at the moment because there is no other dependable striker other than Sanchez. Both Sanchez & Giroud should now start onwards because we badly needs goals . Goals win games & Walcott is very unreliable & poor work rate. You only know he is in the team when he accidentally scores. Montreal & Gabriel are liabilities . These two guys are not good defenders .

    Wenger needs to look at his tactics .His one dimensional style could have gone unstuck
    against WBA.No matter which player he buys,if he persists in weaving intricate patterns
    and trying to find a way past a ten men bus,Arsenal wont be able to win the epl.
    The EPL is not only the English Premier league.It ‘s also the English Physical League.
    Arsenal need monsters in the side and not ballet style players who could easily be sent flying ina 50/50
    tackle.
