West Ham United playmaker Dimitri Payet has told French media outlet RMC Sport that any player would have fun playing in the Arsenal team.
Payet, 29, has been criticised by some fans and pundits after West Ham‘s poor start to the season, but he’s still grabbed three goals and five assists so far.
After starring at Euro 2016 with France, Payet was heavily linked with a move away from West Ham, but they managed to keep hold of him – only for speculation to continue once Slaven Bilic’s men made a poor start to the season.
Recent reports from The Sun claimed that Arsenal were lining up a blockbuster move to try and sign Payet, with his compatriot Arsene Wenger looking to challenge for the Premier League title this season.
The January transfer window is just weeks away, and whilst it remains to be seen whether Arsenal make a concrete move for Payet, the player himself has now been quizzed about the rumours.
Payet has told RMC Sport that he has read the rumours about a move to Arsenal, but joked that Gunners boss Wenger hasn’t mentioned anything to him about being the missing piece in the Arsenal side.
