Speaking to Football Insider, a West Ham United source has lifted the lid on an enticing GSB transfer plan for this summer, with the club eager to offload attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini and replace him with Dinamo Zagreb star Mislav Orsic.
Source lifts lid on GSB transfer plan
The Croatian, perhaps most famously known in England as the attacker who terrorised Tottenham Hotspur in a Europa League upset last month, has been at the centre of interest from West Ham recently.
Indeed, according to another report by Football Insider, GSB and co have even made contact over a potential summer deal, with the outlet now providing an update on this transfer saga.
They claimed that West Ham are now keen to sell Lanzini this summer, knowing his desire to leave east London, and are already planning potential replacements, with Orsic emerging as a top target.
Transfer Tavern take
Scoring an impressive 19 goals in all competitions for Dinamo Zagreb this season, the 28-year-old also netted a stunning hat-trick against Spurs to send them crashing out of the Europa League at the round of 16.
It is claimed that the Irons hold a belief that Orsic can provide a cutting edge from the left flank, with the Croatian coming as a potentially perfect Lanzini replacement given their similar roles.
Time will tell whether West Ham manage to strike a deal for the exciting forward, but it could certainly be a coup judging by these claims and his goal record.
