West Ham United News: Lanzini unsure of Hammers future

10 months ago

In the latest West Ham United news, Manuel Lanzini insists he is happy at the club but does not know what will happen in the future.

The 25-year-old is currently in his third season with the East London outfit and has enjoyed success, with 18 goals from 93 appearances in all competitions.

However the current campaign has not exactly gone to plan, with the Hammers down in 17th place in the Premier League table and facing a battle against relegation in the remaining eight matches.

There is still plenty of time for David Moyes to drag his side up the table but, with so many teams fighting it out at the wrong end of the standings, every result is now vital.

Should West Ham go down then it seems inevitable that the Argentina international would leave but Lanzini, who scored his first international goal in a friendly against Italy on Friday, admits he feels at ease with the capital club.

“I’ve always said I am very happy at the club and it’s a club where I feel very comfortable and I really enjoy working with this group of players,” he told the club’s website.

“I’ve been here for three years now and I get on well with a lot of people.”

The former River Plate star, who has two years remaining on his deal, is likely to be targeted in the summer even if West Ham do manage to avoid the drop.

Whether he stays or goes only time will tell and the South American confessed that, although content in his present surroundings, it is impossible to say what might happen.

“I always give 100 per cent to the club. I don’t know what will happen in the future, but today I am very, very happy and I love playing here,” he added.
