According to West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee, Manuel Lanzini is still on schedule to return for the Hammers in February.
Lanzini was named in the Argentina squad for the 2018 World Cup, but never made the tournament after suffering a ruptured anterior knee ligament injury during a training session ahead of the competition.
Lanzini – a 2016 arrival at West Ham from Al Jazira Club – had surgery in the middle of June, and has been undergoing a period of rehabilitation as he looks to return to full fitness.
According to ExWHUemployee, Lanzini is still on course to return in February, and the West Ham news have been reacting to the latest update.
Many of the supporters cannot wait for the South American to be back in the team, although there was one fan who said that the playmaker should wait until next season to make his return.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham fans can be seen below:
Good news, crucial timing as we challenge for a Champions league place ahead of Tottenham.

No please don’t, get yourself fit and ready for next season! We always rush players back too quick when there really is no need.
