Manu Lanzini will be in line for a new Hammers contract at the turn of the year.
The Hammers are keen to tie the Argentinian to an extended contract as they did Michail Antonio and are ready to talk to the midfielder’s advisers.
Lanzini was brought in an £8 million deal after a season’s loan and is already considered to be a £30 million plus player but the club has absolutely no intention of selling.
Instead they are ready to go all the way in bringing him into line with the club’s top earners after he stepped up brilliantly to take the place of Dimitri Payet last term.
A Hammers source told us that the club would be ready to discuss the new deal with the player whose curent contract runs out in 2020.
Lanzini arrived from Al Jazira at a price of £9.4 million after the Hammers bought up his contract from the club.
A Hammers source said: “We like to reward excellence and that has certainly been the case with Manuel.
Pay him top dollar.A great asset to our club.
Better then Payet if we loose him it will cost £40 mil to replace him
So pay him top dollar now and tie him down for 7 years with a crazy buy out like other teams £80 mil buy out
Bloody hell bubs youre still alive mate.Good to know.Hope you & Jenks are doing well 😁😁
Yeah pay him top wages he is irreplacable the way our transfers are going.
