According to a report by insiders Claret & Hugh, GSB could offload midfielder Manuel Lanzini this summer as they look to provide West Ham United boss David Moyes with additional transfer funds – with the Argentine having started just three Premier League games this season.
Lanzini, who scored a stunning equaliser during the Hammers’ 3-3 draw away to Spurs at the start of the season, has failed to have much more impact beyond that moment.
Lanzini breakdown for West Ham
Now, with GSB looking to improve Moyes’ options, the 28-year-old could make way this summer for around £15 million – coming after the sale of Sebastien Haller and reports suggesting they could also offload Andriy Yarmolenko.
West Ham failed to sign a striker back in the January transfer window, leaving Moyes desperately short of options as fitness issues continue to plague star man Michail Antonio.
Transfer Tavern take
Jarrod Bowen was played as a makeshift forward during their 3-0 win at home to Sheffield United, with Lanzini starting that encounter alongside new signing Jesse Lingard in the attacking midfield positions.
Time will tell whether GSB will find a suitor, but he is apparently one of the names now up for exit consideration. Given all the talk about Declan Rice’s long-term future at the club amid previous links to Chelsea, it now seems it’s now another one of the Hammers’ more longer-serving players who could walk out the door.
