West Ham: PSG make Payet decision; move for Manchester United midfielder; Chelsea bid prepared
Reports in France from Le Parisien indicate that Paris Saint-Germain have decided not to make a January swoop for Dimitri Payet as they have opted to instead focus their resources on bringing in a striker to compete with Edison Cavani, meaning that the 29-year-old may have no choice but to see out the season with the Hammers.
After a shocking start to the campaign the free-kick expert was rumoured to be plotting an exit after speculation linking him to the French club and Real Madrid amongst others in the summer, with a move in January now looking possible and a summer move even more likely.
Slaven Bilic is eyeing up reinforcements to help recover from the poor start, and one of his targets is believed to be Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, say the Evening Standard. Bilic reportedly believes that he could do a job as a holding midfielder to add quality, but also as a makeshift striker if necessary.
The move would most likely be a loan move in January with a possible option to make the deal permanent in the summer and would be a versatile option which could provide cover whilst injuries disrupt the West Ham attack and would offer a physical and aerial threat.
Another improvement could be brought in on another loan deal from Chelsea, with the Daily Mail claiming that the club are preparing a bid for second choice goalkeeper Asmir Begovic as Bilic looks replace Spanish goalkeeper Adrian after his disappointing displays in the first half of the campaign.
The Serbian is said to be keen on the move as he is reluctant to remain on the bench behind Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte, with this deal even more likely to turn into a permanent switch in the summer provided all goes well for all parties.
