Chelsea and Man City want to sign Premier League attacker – report

Chelsea have joined Manchester City and PSG in the race to sign Dimitri Payet this summer

Both Chelsea and Manchester City are keen on signing Dimitri Payet from West Ham United this summer, according to reports.

The France international earned plenty of new admirers for his sparkling displays for West Ham last season.

Payet further enhanced his glowing reputation by scoring the winning goal in France’s 2-1 victory over Romania in their Euro 2016 opener on Friday night.

Chelsea are said to be interested in luring the 29-year-old to Stamford Bridge this summer, and now The Sun is reporting that Manchester City have also joined the race for Payet’s signature.

The same report goes on to state that Paris Saint-Germain remain keen on trying to lure Payet away from east London during the current summer transfer window.
