Pressure Mounts on Arsenal to Bid for French Superstar

By Joel Turner IN General,Transfers - 19:55 Jan 12th 2017

Wantaway West Ham winger Dmitri Payet will not be short of suitors if the club decide to relinquish and let him leave this month.

Currently on strike and refusing to play for The Hammers, Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter in their droves to demand Arsene Wenger makes a bid for his fellow countryman:

Wenger has stated in the past that he considers Payet to be inconsistent, a quality that prevented him from bringing him to the Emirates.

So how does Payet stack up against Arsenal’s current king of assists Mesut Ozil?

With a similar number of Premier League starts so far this season it’s the German that leads the way with goals – recording five so far this season. But Payet has double the assists over the same period.

Last season told a slightly different story, with the Frenchman ahead on goals but trailing Ozil when it came to assists.

If Payet does make the move across London, Arsenal’s forwards must be licking their lips as the prospect of even more goalscoring opportunities should the duo combine.
