West Ham eyeing permanent Lanzini deal?
West Ham United have begun negotiations with Al Jazira Club over a permanent deal for Argentine playmaker Manuel Lanzini.
The 22-year-old joined the East Londoners over the summer on a season-long loan deal.
Lanzini has since then put up a great show in the Hammers shirt, and this has convinced manager Slaven Bilic that the player should be handed a permanent contract, The People claims.
It is added that Bilic is fearful that Lanzini's performances may attract interest from close London rivals.
Al Jazira currently rate Lanzini at around £8m.
