Manuel Lanzini’s talents has raised quite a few eyebrows recently, especially that of Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine has been in good form even though West Ham United is currently fiddling in the relegation zone. Pochettino will be looking to acquire the fellow countryman’s talent to enhance the ball delivering service to Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
Manuel Lanzini has arguably been the Hammers’ best player since the departure of Dimitri Payet. He plunged the dagger into Tottenham’s title chances last season scoring on a 1-0 win on 5th May 2017. The newly appointed manager, David Moyes will be reluctant to let go of one their key players.
Manuel Lanzini marked his goal against the Spurs as one of the best moments. He said, “More important for me is not the goal though, it’s that the team played very well. Tottenham are one of the best teams in the Premier League and to win is very important for us and for us to keep going.”
His professional career started in River Plate as a 17-year-old in 2010. He moved his way up through different clubs like Fluminense and Al Jazira. He was the youngest foreigner at the age of 21 to play in the UAE Arabian Gulf League. After a string of impressive performances, he earned himself a loan move away to West Ham. The 24-year-old has netted the ball 8 times in 39 appearances last season. He has been impressive for the Hammers ever since he moved to the London Stadium.
Pochettino already has an incredible playmaker in Eriksen, who fits into the attacking structure of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min perfectly. But the addition of Manuel Lanzini will not only give the team more attacking strength but also squad depth, which is essential for a club competing in Europe apart from establishing their supremacy in the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino is willing to pursue the attacking midfielder for a transfer this January, as he fits into his style of play very well. The Argentinian manager likes working with young talents and nurturing their hunger and energy positively into the pitch. The average age of the squad is still on 25 years and 266 days. The Argentinian’s current salary of £35,000 pounds can be doubled if he ends up in the North London side in the near future.
