According to Gianluca Di Marzio from Sky Italia on Sunday afternoon, Chelsea have made a formal enquiry to West Ham regarding the price and availability of their winger Dimitri Payet, who is currently busy lighting up the European Championships in France.
The 29-year old France International has grown in stature and therefore value this season after signing a long term contract recently and impressing in world football. The current price tag over his head is thought to be around £60 million.
Chelsea have made initial enquiries as to his availability, but these have been turned away by West Ham. The interest is certainly there though and a big money offer could come in as Roman Abramovich looks to build a squad to compete again next season.
