West Ham's strike force may get an injection of Gallic class if the club's £14million offer for Dimitri Payet.

According to The Guardian the Marseille forward is keen to part ways with his current club after failure to qualify for the Champions League is set to see him lose £12,000 a week in wages.

The 28-year-old could earn £70,000 a week at Upton Park if he accepts the four-year deal on the table.

Is Dimitri Payet worth £14million?

The Irons' need to strengthen their side is made ever more pressing with the start of the Europa League looming on July 2.

They are also thought to still be pursuing Barcelona's Alex Song who impressed on loan at the start of last season.

Despite the owners' pledge to demonstrate their intent with cash to new manager Slaven Bilic, it is not thought they'll match the Catalan side's demand of £5million for the midfielder, however.
