West Ham United is keen to keep French international Dimitri Payet in it’s wings and has put a price tag of 50 million pounds on the player.
The co-chairman David Gold has said that the player who was instumental in France reaching the European Championship final,A�is worth not a penny less that 50 million pounds.
Payet made a move to West Ham last season in June from Marseille and has since his debut scored 12 goals in the Premier League. He has also netted the ball thrice for France in the recently concluded Euro 2016 at home.
There have been speculations about him moving on toA�Chelsea, Manchester City or Paris St Germain due to his performances but the chairman said that the team would be reluctant to sell the player even if someone matched the huge fee.
“We wouldn’t even listen to any offer under 50 million pounds and even then we need to keep our best players so we just don’t welcome any offers at all for Dimitri,” Gold told the BBC.
“He’s instrumental, he’s important to us, the team is built round him and he’s not for sale. He’s settled in London with this family, the fans adore him and we’re going to the Olympic Stadium.
“We’ve done everything we possibly could do. I’m hoping that will be enough (to keep him).”
