West Ham should cut their losses with below-par Manuel Lanzini

The Hammers performer hasn’t been at his best of late.

West Ham United endured another miserable night in the Premier League last night losing 4-1 against Leicester City.

The Hammers were second best throughout the contest and although Mark Noble kept hopes alive at half-time, it proved a comfortable home win in the end.

David Moyes will be learning a lot of things about his side and some players should fear for their future.

With the January transfer window open, the boss will probably look to do some business this month.

West Ham are level on points with the team second bottom of the Premier League and improvement is badly needed.

One man who should be on borrowed time at the London Stadium is Manuel Lanzini.

His form this season has been nothing shy of shocking and supporters are growing increasingly frustrated.

Lanzini has been at West Ham since 2015 when he signed from Al-Jazira, originally on loan.

It is thought that he cost £9 million (The Guardian) and it is nearing the stage now where the Hammers should cut their losses with the Argentine.


The 26-year-old has featured 17 times for the Hammers this season, registering three assists for the team.

Lanzini is averaging just one shot per game this season (Who Scored) and his three league assists don’t make for great reading.

Moyes will be desperate to strengthen his squad and selling Lanzini and getting him off the wage budget would surely be of interest.

Lanzini is on £70,000-a-week (Spotrac) and getting him away from the wage budget would be an ideal situation.


West Ham have accepted average players for too long and they could make a stance with Lanzini.

At this moment in time, other players are carrying him.

The Hammers have given Lanzini enough chances to play his way back into form following some rotten luck with injuries.

Now seems like the ideal time for West Ham to cut their losses.
