Speaking to the club’s official website, West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian says Dimitri Payet is showing what a top player he is at Euro 2016.

Payet has been in fine form at the tournament so far, becoming a key player in France’s midfield.

He was their star man in the group stages, scoring in their first two wins over Romania and Albania, and he has continued his performances in the knockout stages, helping the hosts to the final of the competition.

“Of course we hope France get the Euro because everybody knows Dimi and we are happy for him also,” he told whufc.com.

“He is showing what a top player he is. He is a magnificent player and scored great goals and every time he has the ball at his feet, he is a problem for the other team.”

While West Ham are openly pleased by Payet’s star turn at Euro 2016, they will secretly be hoping there are no big moves for him this summer.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has already expressed his admiration for the midfielder and a move has been suggested.

Of course the Hammers have no need or desire to sell but there is no denying that he could be tempted by the chance to join Zidane at the La Liga giants.
