Wenger: I’m a big fan of Payet

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken about his contract extension and warned that he will nor hurry.

Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger admits he’s a big fan of West Ham rebel Dimitri Payet.

“I expect it to be a very quiet period,” said the 67-year-old specialist.

“We are very strong. We have many, many players who can come in. I rate Payet but I don’t need Payet because we have so many creative players. We have many players who can play in this position.”

To recall, Payet has told West Ham he wants to leave east London as soon as possible.
