For the first notable occasion during this January window, West Ham United have given a clear indication that they are willing to sell French international attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet today in a meeting with Marseille President Jacques-Henri Eyraud and Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarretta, according to L’Équipe.
OM did not make an offer for Payet in that meeting, according the French publication and contrary to reports from Sky Sports that indicate that West Ham rejected a second offer from Marseille in that meeting which was only worth £1m more than the initial bid made.
L’Équipe reject this hypothesis, insisting that no new offer has been made since the €22m plus €3m bonus bid that was lodged and rejected last week.
However, the French publication report that a new offer will be made by OM in the coming hours.
West Ham have accepted to sell, now it is all about the price.
