Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wengere has been interested in signing Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich this winter but it looks like that the move is not happening.
According to renowned Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianell (The Sun), after missing out on signing the Chilean international, the Gunners boss wants West Ham star Dimitri Payet and the Emirates club will move in with a bold attempt to secure his signature this month.
Slaven Bilic confirmed that the Les Bleus playmaker does not want to play for the Hammers anymore but the club are not ready to sell him.
The 29-year-old French international was in fantastic form last season and deservedly made it into the PFA Team of the Year. Moreover, Payet was also brilliant for the national side at the European Championships.
Dimitri has been in decent form this season as well but West Ham have been really poor overall. In 18 league appearances, the former Lille attacker has directly contributed in 9 goals (2 goals and 7 assists).
Capable of playing in multiple attacking positions, Payet will improve our attack but he will surely not come for cheap if the Hammers do sell him. He is rated (Mirror) around 35 million pounds ($43million).
