West Ham ace Dimitri Payet is being linked with a switch to Real Madrid after praise from their boss Zinedine Zidane.
Payet has been one of the stand out performers in the Euro 2016 finals and his displays have left pundits waxing lyrical about his abilities, with Zidane now joining the list of admirers.
He said: “When he wasn’t in the French team he never gave up, and now he is proving he is one of the most important and talented players, not just in the French side, but in Europe.
“He had an incredible season with West Ham, and now at The Euros is showing that no occasion is too big for him. He would improve any side in Europe, that is how talented he is.
“From a coaches perspective he is everything you look for in an attacking midfield player.”
Payet has been linked with a switch before but only recently signed a new and improved contract with West Ham who are determined to keep him as they prepare to move to the Olympic stadium.
