Lanzini loves the South American connection

Manu Lanzini is set to stay at the club with Manuel Pellegrini ready to make him the club’s main man.

The Argentine playmaker -who was just a kid at River Plate when Manuel Pellegrini was in charge of the Buenos Aires outfit – is keen to remain under the South American regime now moving in at the Hammers.

The new manager is planning to play him off Marko Arnautovic and Chicharito with whom he will hold talks when returning from  a summer break in Chile with his family.

There has, of course, been much speculation surrounding the midfielder’s future with a move to Liverpool regularly raised by the mainstream media.

But there has been absolutely no contact with the merseysiders and Pellegrini won’t countenance a move with his own brand of football demanding the 25 year old’s creativity.

The Hammers are in no desperate rush to extend the player’s current deal as he has two years left on his current deal with a year’s option in their favour.

However, the club are ready to open preliminary discussions with the player set to become a vital cog in Pellegrini’s planning.

  1. Let’s hope this is the case. And not just wishful thinking. After the season we’ve just had lanzini must have wondered where the club were going.
