Reports linking Manuel Lanzini with a move to Juventus are wide of the mark, according to reliable insider EXWHUEmployee.

Speaking on The West Ham Way podcast on Phoenix FM (Wednesday, November 6), EXWHUEmployee admitted that a Juventus switch would be unlikely.

Lanzini has been on the bench for the Hammers starting line-up recently after a string of poor displays. West Ham fans have expressed frustration at his performances as the club’s form spirals downwards.

There have been recent whispers about a potential Juventus move for Lanzini. But the Italian giants are unlikely to move for the Argentina playmaker, who has previously been linked with Liverpool.

Lanzini needs to rediscover his touch and fast. West Ham are crying out for a player with the qualities of Lanzini in his prime. He could carry the ball forward, beat players and pose a constant goal threat.

West Ham have been unable to halt the rapid slide down the league table and the season is already in danger of fizzling out. Even worse, it has the potential to escalate and become a relegation battle if the form is not reversed.

Lanzini is a player who has the ability to conjure something up. But the 26-year-old needs to justify the hype surrounding him. He owes West Ham a performance and the fans just want the ‘Little Jewel’ back to his best.
