Dalian Yifang looking to move for Marseille’s Dimitri Payet

France Football report that Chinese outfit Dalian Yifang have shortlisted French international attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet as potential signing in the January window.

Payet would see his salary triple if a move came about, to a club that is due to appoint former Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim as manager shortly.

If Marseille were to sell, they would be seeking between €25m and €30m, but the symbolic impact of the departure of club captain Payet could provoke fan anger.

It is currently unclear as to what the player thinks of this interest and how OM might react to it.
