Lanzini “in the air” after injury

lanziniManu Lanzini is on his way back to Britain right now (Tues) after being injured during Argentina’s Rio Olympics  warm-up game against Colombia.

ClaretandHugh was told a few minute ago the midfielder is currently “in the air” and heading for the UK where he will immediately be checked out at the assessment centre. If required, he will then be sent off to  Spire Roding hospital.

Stijn Vandenbroucke, the head of medical and sports science.“We are in close contact with Manuel and the AFA (Argentine Football Association), who have started a late-release replacement procedure with the IOC (International Olympic Committee).”

Our own sources told us:  “We understand he is in the air and on his way back. We want Manu here as quickly as possible.

We want to get this dealt with as soon as possible and we are glad the procedures to release him were completed quickly.”

  1. Good to hear he will be back to our own medics for recovery,I see Everton are trying to get arntovic from Stoke for 12.5 million,he is proven fast and would thrive on a supply from our midfielders, might be a better option as bacca is taking the ****

  2. Anyone is better then Bacca now,
    We already have AC as a target man,we need someone with something to offer,Calleri looks good in the air as well and Sak is why he is here,
    Swap Valencia for Ayew won’t cost much and we get an upgrade,
    Swap Sak for Barahino and we get something different and a proven goal scorer for £5 million,
    Then add Calleri,
    Ginter would cover the right hand side at the back,
    Sidle the .french left back would be a good deal at £10 million
    £25 million Max what it would cost for Bacca
    These deals could be done easy if they get the ft there bums and push through the deals,

  3. Unless west ham gets there finger out and commit to a striker to play alongside and off carol and calleri we will miss out !!
    Arsenal are sniffing around yedder as we speak by all accounts , bacca seems to be causing all sorts of problems !! It needs putting to bed a.s.a.p. he does not want to come !!
    We all know how Wenger likes a tadpole and likes to pay as little as possible , 8 mill compared to 40 mill for lacazette ? And gets a classy little player as well , its a no brainer !
    Let’s hope lanzini hasn’t done to much damage .

  4. As soon as we get near some striker, Arsenal sneek in and scare hm off without signing him them-selves. Lagazette, Bacca and now ben yedder ( whatever )
