According to L’Equipe, Marseille have submitted a bid for Dimitri Payet who has been heavily linked with Arsenal over the past few days.
The bid is said to be €12.5m for both Payet and Florian Thauvin.
L’Equipe report that Arsenal are still interested in the player however any transfer would be subject to the departure of Gervinho and that doesn’t seem very likely.
The Payet to Arsenal link popped up in the UK press a few days ago with the Daily Mail leading the way however there didn’t seem to be any concrete information offered to back up the claims that Wenger was interested in the winger who scored 12 times for Lille last season.
Gervinho has already stated that he wishes to remain at Arsenal and fight to win back his starting spot so it would seem like this is yet another rumour that will come to nothing.
Of course, we could always be wrong.
