Lanzini arrives in Italy

Manuel Lanzini is on holiday in Italy posting a photo on social media of him with his wife on a boat with an amazing background of Positano.

Yesterday a similar holiday snap by fellow Hammers teammate Felipe Anderson in Rome led to a report that the Brazilian was engineering a move back to Lazio. A suggestion quickly denied by club insider and Anderson’s brother Julian.

A quick look at the Italian map shows that Positano is close to Naples which home of Napoli so cue a report in the next few hours than Lanzini and representatives are speaking to Napoli with a view to a move.

Like all other Premier League players, Lanzini is enjoying three weeks holiday with his family and is due to report back to training at Rush Green on Monday 16th August for pre-season with the start of next season scheduled in for Saturday 12th September.

  1. Can’t quite work out what our transfer strategy really is. Not quite sure the real value of a bunch of under performing players to other teams. It could take so long to off-load them that the megre total may not be enough for the purchase any worthwhile players that are still available. On the other hand if Ricey goes (which is still a real possibility), there should be more funds to purchase better class replacements. But again. if this is left until the last minute, we are left with the same senario of trying to buy players who were originally third or fourth choice because those higher on our list have already been snapped up.

  2. Stunning, and the landscape !

  3. He has a nerve i will give him that.Was he not on holiday along with Anderson whilst Rice,Soucek,Bowen, Antonio and the other lads dug in and saved us from relegation?.It is trying to sell them that is going to be very difficult now considering the season they have had and covid 19.

  4. I can’t see Napoli going in for Lanzini, unless he’s going for less than 10 million. He would barely make the bench in that squad.

    • We will struggle to buy anyone as we cannot raise the money we need in Covid times by player sales. Any outgoings and incomings will be loans with option. The wages we pay to persuade players to join puts buying sides off. Other option is to sell our jewell and reinvest all of it, if allowed to by our board

  5. Just saw an article by a fan saying that Lanzine might be useful at Leeds. He was quoting he would cost £9M. Seems low but gives you an idea of how others fans look at our squad.

  6. Lol I see the funny side of the article , it’s like wherever the players go in holiday the wider media will make a storey of it . Let’s be honest we’re linked with selling a few players but nobody really knows who we will want to sell . On the same theme we’re also linked with how many players i have lost count . Silly media season . On Lanzini if he can gain his confidence again after the injury and DM can get the best back would we really want to sell ? . He’s a hell of a player when at his previous best I could say the same for Anderson so depends if Moyes wants to shift them on or if he thinks they can regain the confidence and quality ! ⚒

  7. Is this the real Lanzini or his twin brother with the yips that’s been playing for us this year?
