Hammers to hand Lanzini new five-year deal

The 26-year-old, whose current deal runs until June 2020, could only make 10 PL appearances in 2018-19 after a knee injury he suffered preparing for last summer’s World Cup with Argentina ruled him out for 9 months.

West Ham United will offer Argentine midfielder Manuel Lanzini a new five-year contract in order to fend off suitors.

The Hammers are eager to fend off competition for the Argentine from Turkish side Fenerbahce who are keen on Lanzini as they have identified him as a perfect replacement for Mathieu Valbuena, but West Ham won’t be entertaining any bids from them or anyone else, as Pellegrini wants him for next season and going forward.

Manu has been a key player for the Hammers since arriving London from United Arab Emirates’ Al-Jazira in August 2015, scoring 14 times in 78 games thus far.
