West Ham United star Manuel Lanzini has declared that he wants to play more in the Premier League.
The West Ham attacking midfielder was handed a rare outing on Thursday night against AEK Larnaca in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

However, Lanzini has hardly played in the Premier League this season, with David Moyes having given him just 144 minutes of action thus far (Transfermarkt).
The 30-year-old’s wife actually sent an Instagram message to Moyes earlier this season that her husband should be playing more.
Rumours have actually been rife that Lanzini could leave West Ham this summer.
But could Manu really leave the London Stadium? If he continues to not play in the Premier League, I reckon an exit for the Argentinian ace will be a certainty…
Manuel Lanzini sends strong message to West Ham manager David Moyes
The talented South American ace has been speaking to WHUFC.com about his lack of game-time in the Premier League this season:
“I want to be important in every game for the team because that is what I train for. Now, I am starting in the Europa matches but I want to play more in the Premier League. I am happy to be in the starting XI. The West Ham fans are crazy. It is always a pleasure to play for them.”
Lanzini has a point, he is definitely deserving of more game-time.
Moyes just doesn’t seem to fancy him this season.
And if Manuel Lanzini wants to leave West Ham come the summer, the Scot will only have himself to blame.
