Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to complete big business this summer, to improve their competitiveness domestically and on the continent- with the latter being an area Arsenal have failed to crack.
The boys on the sofas are debating who exactly could be brought into North London at the end of the season and they’ve been stunned to see who the latest big-name to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium is.
Arsene Wenger’s side have experienced the talents of Payet first-hand this season, after he dominated their midfield on the opening day to help the Hammers pick up a surprise victory against their London rivals.
With Payet on top-form this term, Arsenal’s supposed interest isn’t surprising but the Hammers moved quickly to issue a statement this morning, condemning the reports and stating Payet is going nowhere.
Our landlord believes a move could happen though, if Arsenal were to offer the right price, though he’s not convinced Payet is the sort of midfielder the Gunners require right now.
Arsenal fans, is their room for Payet in your team? Let us know in the comments below!
