L'Equipe says the playmaker will pocket £6m-a-year if a deal is finalised.
Considering Payet has dug his heels in so hard this January, it makes little sense for West Ham to keep a valuable asset out of matchday squads and picking up ages, especially as that would only likely decrease the transfer fee on offer for the French global.
It's a story that has dominated the Hammers' January, but Slaven Bilic could be ready to draw a line under the uncertainty and let Payet have his dream move to Ligue 1.
West Ham had rejected Marseille's previous € 25 million bid, but their latest increased offer for the France International is believed to be the right one to persuade West Ham to sell their unhappy star.
But on the plus side for West ham, since his exclusion from the squad, West ham seem to be playing better than ever.
But Sky report that "time is running out" and that an agreement for Payet to return to his former club is still "miles away".
"You owe it to the club and the fans - especially where he came from before he got to West Ham".
Reports suggest that Payet's wife and his three children have already moved back to France and have started looking for schools with his wife determined to raise their children in their homeland.
Bilic's side have won five of their last seven league matches, including their last two against Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough.
