Lanzini new deal decision

By Dave Langton

West Ham are set to offer Manuel Lanzini a new contract.

The Hammers are keen to keep the Argentina international but his current contract is set to expire in 2023.

The Irons have an option to keep the 29-year-old at the club and sources have told ClaretandHugh there is a desire at the Hammers to tie Lanzini down.

There are doubts over a number of midfielders this summer; Mark Noble has left, Alex Kral has departed, and Conor Coventry is unlikely to be given a first-team chance this season, while there is a question mark hanging over Tomas Soucek.

Lanzini can play in central midfield and there is no appetite at the club to lose another midfielder, especially for nothing.

He made 46 appearances last season and remains a key part of David Moyes’ plans as he looks forward to another season that will include European competition, after qualification to the Europa Conference League.

  1. It took a long while for Lanzini to regain his confident following that horrible injury sustained in World Cup preparation. But he’s now back to his best and at 29, worthy of an extension to his current deal. One of my favourite players who is probably the most technically gifted at the club.

  2. His goal in the Tottenham 3-3 comeback was one of those best moments, like when his compatriot Tevez jumped into the crowd or Dicanio scored his scissor kick, it will always be remembered. He deserves a new contract even if he only remains as a player who comes off the bench with twenty to go but I think he could be invaluable in the conference league.

  3. Typical West Ham we started asking Players to stay, before we have the Players in we need. Lanzini is getting older, he doesn’t win the tackles he used to win. To much sentiment. Keep Arthur, keep Lanzini. Time to forget sentiment and sweep the broom through and buy the Players you need. Not keep old men.

    • Would love to know how old you are if you think someone is an old man at the age of 29. A man is at his strongest physically at the age of 30. Lanzini hasn’t even reached his peak. The only question is over physical injuries taking a toll with Lanzini having had a serious knee injury.

  4. He was probably at his best when we had Payet. The injury certainly affected him. One game in particular, last season, I think he deputised for either Rice or Soucek and he was outstanding. Maybe Kral’s replacement will bring out the best in him?
