According to The Athletic, Juventus are considering reigniting their interest in West Ham United midfielder Manuel Lanzini at the end of the season.
The report claims that the Italian champions considered launching a move for the Argentina international over the summer but ultimately decided against it.
Ever wondered how modern day skills would cope with the world’s oldest football? Find out in the video below…
It would be fair to say that the South American has struggled to show his best form for Manuel Pellegrini’s side this season; indeed, the statistics do not lie.
Lanzini has not actually started for West Ham since the 2-0 loss to Everton on October 19, but Juve are reportedly still interested in signing him.
The London club’s fans have been out in their numbers reacting to the transfer claim, and many would seemingly be pleased to see the back of him:
What’s to consider? Flog him. Sell him as well.

A big fat YESSSS!!! But it’s only a rumour, so not getting my hopes up…

I would sell him but only in the summer. Who could we realistically get to replace him in January?

Would take £40m

Yes – poor since injury. No penetration or end product. A bit lightweight for Prem.

£45m I’d 100% sell, he’s a talent he’s just not consistent enough, it’d also allow us to cover CM & our defence, Demiral +30m I’d bite your hand off!
Love Lanzini but he’s not looking like a 100k P/W player or a shadow of his former self…
