It has been reported by the British newspaper that West Ham fear that they may struggled to hold onto Payet if he continues to play well for France at the ongoing Euro 2016 finals.
Chelsea, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all claimed to be interested in securing the services of the attacking midfielder in the summer transfer window.
According to a report in The Mirror earlier this week, Chelsea want to sign Payet, but the Blues have reportedly been told by their London rivals that the Frenchman will not be sold at any price.
The Mirror now claims that although West Ham have no desire to sell the 29-year-old this summer, they are concerned that Europe’s big clubs will try to test their resolve should Payet continue to perform well at the European Championship in France.
The former Marseille attacking midfielder has been a key player for France so far in the tournament, scoring two goals and creating 14 chances in two games.
