Manuel Lanzini a wanted man as Hammers demand £30m plus

West Ham United are trying to fend of interest Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool in Manuel Lanzini – insisting they want more than £30million.

Nicknamed ‘The Little Jewel’ Lanzini has lived up to his billing and has been brilliant for West Ham since arriving from United Arab Emirates based Al Jazira.

He moved to the Middle East from Argentine giants River Plate – but few English clubs would entertain him – due to the fact he was playing in the UAE –  but West Ham took the plunge, initially on-loan, and have not regretted it since.

Lanzini has more than shown he is capable of the playing in England, and now the ‘big boys’ are circling to land him.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool made a cheeky approach before West Ham made his deal permanent last year, but now they are back again and are ready to big bid as they feel he would be perfect for their high pressing style – given Lanzini’s outstanding work-rate coupled with his technical attributes.

But Spurs and Arsenal are also more than just keen, and have made contact about the 24-year-old, whilst Everton have also expressed an interest.

West Ham would be willing to offer Lanzini fresh terms – but they can’t live with the offers he would get from their top-six rivals who are all willing to pay him well in excess of £100,000-a-week.
