As reported by The Sun, West Ham United are ready to complete a major bit of business this summer by handing Manuel Lanzini a bumper new deal at the club.
West Ham didn’t really have a season to celebrate last term but they remain optimistic they can compete well in the English Premier League next season and a key part of that will be retaining the players that have performed well over the last 12 months.
One of those players that made a big contribution was Manuel Lanzini, whose eight goals from midfield really added a threat to the Hammers, especially in the absence of Dimitri Payet.
Now in order to fend off interest from rival clubs, West Ham are set to offer him a new and improved £50,000-per-week contract, according to The Sun.
The Argentinian only recently made his move to the Hammers permanent after an initial loan spell but it seems the club are determined to tie him down to the club for the best years of his career.
Still just 24 years old and having won the Players’ Player Of The Year at the club and also international caps for Argentina in the close season, his future is incredibly bright and if the Irons can get the deal done it’ll be a massive boost for supporters.
