Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was full of praise for France's Dimitri Payet after the group stage of Euro 2016 came to an end on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old was France's surprise hero as they eased into the knockout phase of the competition.
He signed a new five-and-a-half year contract with the Hammers last February but is a target for top European clubs including Chelsea according to recent reports.
"Spain did impress me, but then they lost to Croatia, who looked strong too," Ferdinand told the BBC.
"There's no team that stands out at the moment and maybe that's one of the exciting things.
"You can't say anyone is nailed on to be a finalist or semi-finalist because every team has a chink in their armour.
"Dimitri Payet has been the go-to guy for France so far - everyone expected it to be Antoine Griezmann or Paul Pogba. But Payet has come out of the traps flying.
"He scored an unbelievable goal in the first game with his left foot and a stunning goal with his right foot when he went into the box in the second game.
We've seen it from him all season in the Premier League. But to come out in the Euros in a France shirt and do it - for me he's been the player of the tournament so far."
