St James Park

Florian Thauvin is reportedly on the radar of Newcastle United, while West Ham United allegedly want Dimitri Payet.

Marseille chairman Vincent Labrune has told RMC that the club have received offers for wingers Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin.

Payet and Thauvin have been linked with moves to Premier League outfits West Ham United and Newcastle United respectively this summer.

According to The Daily Mail, 22-year-old winger Thauvin is among the transfer targets of the Magpies, while The Telegraph report of West Ham’s interest in 28-year-old winger Payet.

Labrune has now revealed that Marseille have received offers for both of the players, but he has not named which clubs have bid for them.

“We have offers for several players,” the Marseille chairman told RMC, as translated by Get French Football News. “If we have an offer that we like, we will open the door.

“We have never had as many offers for as many players as we do now. Thauvin, Imbula and Payet have a lot of offers.”
