£20m Marseille striker target loves Payet

West Ham’s summer transfer target, Michy Batshuayi has shown his love for West Ham playmaker Dimtri Payet by posting a message on his official twitter saying “Payet, Payet, Payet” followed by three love hearts.

Marseille are thought to be unwilling to let the hitman leave mid-season but that has not stopped some reports in the media today suggesting that the Hammers will make an early move for the striker to scupper attempts by Arsenal and Spurs to hijack a deal in the summer. The report suggests the player could sign a pre-contract which is like a gentleman’s agreement.

The 22-year-old striker has scored 15 goals in 27 Ligue 1 and Europa League games for Marseille this season. Scouts from West Ham, Manchester United and Liverpool attended Marseille’s 1-1 draw with Lyon on Sunday night.

  1. Michy is superb, a steal at £20m,
    not sure anyone will get him for that little, closer to £40 would be more realistic, but you never know


  2. If you look at his twitter ,he also loves Aguero and eden Hazard so let us not rush to too easy lazy journalistic conclusions….

  3. If you want the so called best then you pay east money ? Unfortunately its all about money most of the time ! He is young and will have everyone after him . Maybe payet could have a word in his earole! Ssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?

  4. Price not my problem,so if it’s a yes or no YES PLEASE DAVE AND DAVE

  5. Payet would be the one he would want to play alongside. He already knows Hazard from the Belgian squad. This young fella can put the ball away. Imagine him playing off Payet. Look at the squad we’ve got now. Batshuayi would fit right in. 20 mill is cheap for what we would gain from a quality injury free player in todays market. They’d carve most of our opposition to shreds.
