A summer move away from the Hammers may prove difficult for the 28-year-old, however, as David Moyes wants to keep him at the London Stadium.

Lanzini has already been linked with a move away from West Ham this summer.

Marseille want to sign the Argentinian ace according to a report from Foot Mercato.

The Hammers ace has suffered badly since rupturing his ACL in the build up to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Despite the odd glimpse of brilliance, the South American is just not the player he once was.

 

Manuel Lanzini wants out at West Ham?

El Intransigente claims that the mercurial midfield play-maker’s desire is to return to River Plate.

It is suggested that that may well be impossible this summer, however, due to the fact that David Moyes still views Manu as a key player for West Ham.

It’s a tricky one really because Moyes has limited funds to spend this summer.

So if he wants to supplement his paltry transfer budget, selling Lanzini may well be the best way to do just that.

The Scot will just have to weigh up how much of part the 28-year-old will have to play next season.
