Midfielder loan by end of the month

argThe club’s ITK has also revealed that West Ham hope to sign a highly rated midfielder on loan by the end of July.

The Boleyn Insider finished his column by saying “The Club are also looking to bring in another highly rated midfielder and hope a loan move will also be finalised by end of the month.”

Speculation has suggested the player could be Argentine midfielder Manuel Lanzini from UAE-based club Al Jazira.

Reports have suggested that Lanzini has agreed to join the Hammers on a season long loan deal. Lanzini was previously linked with West Ham in the past but the former River Plate star opted for a move to Al Jazira for a fee of around £5.25million.

  1. Writing looks on the wall for Downing going if this guy comes in.Zarate off back to italy as well maybe i see.

  2. The Lanzini story has been about for a while.Would be great to have in tandem with Song.Also the story that Cabaye wants a gig at West Ham according to Daily Star.If the owners could sign Cabaye I would be one ecstatic supporter.If it means moving on Downing or others from the hippo era so be it.

  3. The way those clips started I thought Wetpants were branching out into video production lol
    I also note he’s played for River Plate and an Arabic news atation so another bloody reject lol

  4. be interesting to know what Spanish-Arabic Rhyming Slang sounds like…

    seriously…at what point do domestic teams stop being domestic… I do keep prattling about “homegrown” and I’ve no issues with any (well, most) cultures…still…at some point, the FA has to draw players for Wembley home matches and at some point I’d love for West Ham to have more of a contribution to that effort. For me, it’s a matter of pride to see British players being the spine of teams with a compliment of foreign adding some spice to the side…seems I’m a bit old fashioned.

    It’s why I want the Downings, Jarvises, Nobles, Creswells, Jenkinsons, Tomkins, Collins, Reeces (ha)…etc. – even AC and KN at their peaks. To think that the best players are not English says volumes.

    So glad that El Hippo is done with and ever hopeful that Slav’s Army singing “Who do you think you are kidding Mr. Blatter” with youngsters in tow from the Academy can revitalise domestically at the OS!

  5. Looks fast…needs a bigger goal though.

  6. He will come on board the min Downing move on,
    At 22 we can bring him on in our way my only problem is if he succeededs this year and looks good we I’ll be in the same position as Southampton when he will move to someone else because we have not tied up a full transfer,
    Just like Jenkinson we pay to train a Gooner

  7. Is ment to be an exciting player,read a bit about him when he was at River Plate,could be a good addition to the squad.Will mean the end of Zarate & Downing i should think.
