The start of November means that the footballing world is now just two months away from the re-opening of the transfer window, and West Ham could be set for a major sale.
Juventus are said to be debating whether to launch a fresh approach for West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini.

The Athletic (subscription needed) report that Juventus are pondering a move for West Ham number 10 Manuel Lanzini, with the report claiming that the Serie A champions are contemplating whether or not to revive their interest in the Argentinan midfielder despite the 25-year-old magician penning a new contract this summer until 2023 (per West Ham’s official website).
With West Ham signing the Argentine international for a reported fee of £9m, according to The Guardian, Irons supporters on social media were seemingly comfortable with Lanzini potentially leaving east London if a big offer was to come in for the former Al Jazira playmaker.
Here’s what some West Ham fans had to say about Juventus potentially reigniting their interest in Lanzini, with a surprising number of fans open to the prospect of the playmaker departing for the European giants…
£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…

yes. good player but just doesn’t do enough. after payet went I thought he was really going to step up but just never really has. no consistency for me.

That’s good news as he does sod all whenever he starts. An offer of around £25m-30m should do it.

Anything near 25m I’d snap their arms off

If it’s a good offer take it. Never been a consistent player since he’s been with us.
