Arsenal Target Lille Schemer Dimitri Payet

Arsenal have been linked with a move for LOSC Lille attacking midfielder and France international star Dimitri Payet according to French media sources.

The Gunners board have handed manager Arsene Wenger a war chest of money which they want him to use to on incoming players this summer and Wenger will most likely turn to his favourite nation for players, France.

Payet could become part of this Arsenal revolution according to French newspaper Le Parisien but will be rivaled by fellow Ligue One side Marseille who have signaled their intentions towards signing Payet.

The 26-year old has been in fine form for the Les Dogues this season with 13 goals and 22 assists to his name in 54 appearances in all competitions.

This form has even led to Payet finding a place in the national squad with the midfielder featuring in friendlies against Uruguay and Brazil.
