Alexandre Lacazette has produced a thundering round of approval for Dimi Payet which may even yet persuade him to trust his future to West Ham.
Dimi really has shaken up the world with his astonishing performance for the French in the opening game of Euro 2016 and like the rest of the world Lacazette the French striker was incredibly impressed.
In a tweet he screamed “Payeeeeeeeet” folowed by eight smileys and the French flag – all of which could be great news for the Irons.
Lacazette is still considering his next move but it seems certain he will be leaving Lyon this summer and Payet’s displays could well have a bearing on his final destination.
David Sulivan made it clear to ClaretandHugh that Dimi is going nowhere and the club refuse to give up the chase for Lacazette so hope springs eternal.
