West Ham United reportedly want to re-sign their former player.
The Marseille man has been offered back to the Hammers, according to a report from the Guardian, but it remains to be seen whether the mercurial Frenchman will be seen wearing the famous Claret and Blue kit again.
The 31-year-old was on fire for Marseille last season, chalking up 10 goals and 24 assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.
He left West Ham acrimoniously in January 2017, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £25 million, and at the time it would have been hard to envisage a scenario where he would ever return to the London Stadium.
West Ham do have the advantage of being able to offer the 31-year-old Premier League football, and the level of competition that that entails, however.
Whether Payet would be accepted back by the Hammers faithful is another matter all together, though.
