Lanzini’s brother trains with West Ham

LanziniManuel Lanzini has been joined by his brother Thomas at Rush Green.

Older brother Tomas Lanzini, 24, has been checking out the facilities at West Ham’s Rush Green training ground during a break in his season with Chile’s Deportivo Nublense for whom he plays as a midfielder. They both rose through the ranks of Argentine club River Plate together as youngsters.

22 year Manuel posted photos of him and his older brother training at Rush Green on his instagram account.

Earlier today Al-Jazira CEO, Ayed Mabkhout says he fully expects West Ham to shell out a fee which converts to around £7.5m to complete the deal. Mabkhout told the National paper: “If they decide before April 30th to buy Lanzini then they have to pay €10m. If they pay it we will take it. There have been no discussions with West Ham until now, but I think they’re going to do it.His performance has been very good up to this moment and they need the player, but we have to wait for something official.”

  1. How good is his brother ?
    Could he be a right back ?

    • Yes he could be the surprise New Year’s gift you having been hoping for bubs.Happy and prosperous New Year to all readers and especially those who tolerate my rantings on this site.COYI

  2. We’re not going to buy anyone unless someone comes off the wage bill. Someone like mat Jarvis for instance who was on 40k. So I wonder if lanzinis brother is any good? We have 40 k a week to spend after all.

  3. DS actually said no-one who is currently on the wage bill at this point and time. Jarvis isn’t on the wage bill currently as Norwich are paying him his 40 notes per week

  4. Easy remove JOB,,
    Maybe there is an Italian team interested in Zarate who has a good right back to trade,
    Happy new year Sean keep those stats coming,

    • JOB is believed to be around £33,000 per week but with six months left on his contract so unlikely to attract a transfer fee. He is 29 so has a few good years left in him. I doubt he would attract any interest from the Premier League. Maybe he could return to Bolton who are rock bottom of the Championship for whom he previously played 50 times. Good chance Bolton will be playing League 1 next season.

  5. His brother has played 8 games so far this year and has scored 4 goals !
    He is a m/f player just like the jewel , he could be set as a diamond signing ?
    Happy new year all !!
