Confirmed! Arsenal to activate Payet’s release clause after player demand move, £30 million sees deal done

Arsene Wenger seem to be one of the busiest of the Premier League managers – first it was a deal for Cohen Bramall and subsequently, his French trio put pen to paper on long term contracts.

According to latest report, Arsenal have been handed a huge boost if they want to sign Dimitri Payet of West Ham – this comes after the player handed a transfer plea to the club…

The Daily Mirror claims that Marseille, who are funded by American businessman Frank McCourt, are ready to launch a £30 million offer for the France international.

It’s also claimed that Marseille, who sold the 29-year-old to West Ham for £10.7m in 2015, are the only team to have registered serious interest in the midfielder. However, Arsenal are understood to have a long standing interest in the winger.

‘We have said we don’t want to sell our best players but Payet does not want to play for us. He wants to leave,’ said West Ham boss Slaven Bilic.

‘We are not going to sell him. This team, the staff, we gave him everything, we were always there for him. I feel let down. I feel angry.

‘I spoke to the chairman and this is not a money issue. We gave him a long contract because we want him to stay.

‘We aren’t going to sell him, not whatsoever. It’s not a money issue or anything. We want to keep our best players.

‘I expect from him to come back and to show commitment and determination to the team like the team has shown to him.’
