West Ham star flattered by Liverpool but remains committed to the cause

West Ham loan star Manuel Lanzini is flattered by reports linking him with a move to Liverpool, though remains fully committed to the Hammers, report ESPN.

The 22-year old has become one of the club’s key players since arriving on a season long loan deal from UAE outfit Al Jazira.

The former River Plater youngster has had an odd career path, moving to the Middle East at such an early time in his playing career.

Five goals in 14 games, largely from attacking midfield positions, including one in a famous win against the Reds at Anfield have reportedly prompted Liverpool to keep an eye on him.

An Argentine youth international, the attacker has revealed his delight at seeing his name mentioned with the likes of the Merseyside giants.

‘It’s an absolute honour that a team like Liverpool has put an eye on me’, said the midfielder, ‘but at the moment I am focused on the match against Tottenham.’

Lanzini was one of six arrivals under new manager Slaven Bilic at the start of the season, and the Upton Park team have looked impressive ever since.

They are sixth in the table, having beaten the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea already this season.

Irons c-owner David Sullivan has revealed that the club have an ‘unbreakable option’ to land Lazini on a permanent deal at the end of this campaign.
