Five reasons West Ham should cash in on Payet
Dimitri Payet’s 2015/16 season was an exceptional one. No other West Ham player managed to reach the levels he did – at times he was a one-man tour-de-force in the final third for the Irons – and in his debut season outside of France he scored nine goals and laid on twelve assists in the Premier League.
That was form that rolled into EURO 2016, too, as he helped Les Bleus to reach the final in a home tournament, scoring three times, while providing two assists in the process, across six games.
That’s meant that speculation around his future has reached fever pitch in recent months, with a variety of clubs linked with the Frenchman. Manchester United and Arsenal were heavily aligned with the attacking midfielder last month, as reported by The Daily Star, and Marseille are the latest club in the Payet race, with French outlet L’Equipe reporting just last week that he could be on his way out of West Ham.
