Chelsea make enquires about signing France star – report

Chelsea are interested in signing Dimitri Payet this summer, according to reports

Chelsea have approached West Ham United about the possibility of signing Dimitri Payet this summer, according to reports.

The France international was the star of the show as his late stunning goal earned his country a 2-1 win over Romania in the opening Euro 2016 game on Friday night.

Payet was one of the Premier League’s standout performers last season and won plenty of new admirers for his displays for the Hammers last term.

The 29-year-old is sure to be a transfer target for a number of Europe’s top clubs this summer.

Now, the Daily Express is reporting that Chelsea have approached West Ham about the possibility of signing him ahead of next season.

The same report, however, goes on to say that West Ham have told Chelsea that they value Payet at £60m, despite joining for just £10.7m last summer.
