Pardew was keen on the player before he was signed by us and saw a bid of £500,000 turned down in 2012.
ClaretandHugh reported earlier in the week that he is strongly fancied by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers but that the Hammers are ready to offer Ravel a new deal.
Rodgers wants to ensure that his temperament is 100 per cent before making a move but Pardew is unworried by that.
Should Ravel decide the time has come to move on with just a year left on his contract, the Hammers will make them scrap and will want top dollar.
An Upton Park source said: “There will definitely be a 20 per cent sell on clause involved although the facts are we don’t want to lose him and will hold talks on a new contract.”
