Many Arsenal fans on Twitter want their club to make a move for Dmitri Payet after it emerged he wants to leave West Ham.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic revealed at a press conference on Thursday that Payet no longer wanted to play for the club, but insisted he would not be sold in January.
That did not stop some Gunners supporters dreaming of Payet joining Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Lucas Perez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott in the Arsenal attack.
Arsenal should sign Payet. Something spectacular has popped up Arsene, go get it done.

We don’t need payet , but his creative influence in games is too big to ignore. Cheeky £15m bid should do it , @Arsenal

Arsenal should go for Payet. In the absence of Cazorla, we’ve needed extra creativity in the side.

Meanwhile, West Ham fans were unsurprisingly taken aback by the news – and while some blamed the club’s board, many directed their anger towards Payet.
Thats why payet has never been at a big club because of his mentality, his head went at Lille and Marseille now at us. sell him @davidgold
