The France international has suggested he
would be keen to pergrinate to the Gunners if the

admitting he misses Champions League
Dimitri Payet has suggested that he would
be keen to pergrinate to Arsenal – but has
insisted that Arsene Wenger has never
made a move for him.
The West Ham star has frequently been
linked with a move across London, with
reports suggesting that his compatriot and

does not suit me."
"I will ask the questions at the right time."
It has been reported that Payet has a
release clause worth as little as £15 million
if West Ham are relegated from the Premier

The Hammers currently find themselves
13th in the standings, only five points
above the drop zone and 10 behind sixth-
placed Manchester Coalesced - who currently
occupy the last European qualification spot.
