West Ham ready to show the door to a £70k-a-week player in January

West Ham United midfielder Manuel Lanzini is expected to leave the club soon.

According to a report from soccer insider informationThe Hammers are looking to sell the player for a fee of around £10m when the January transfer window opens. The Argentine midfielder has a contract with the London club until the summer of 2023 and it seems that West Ham are not willing to lose him for free.

They will try to get some money back for the player by selling him mid-season and it remains to be seen if there are any clubs willing to provide him with a way out.

Once regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League, Lanzini’s form has plummeted. The player he has made only one start in the Premier League for David Moyes’ side this season and it makes sense for the Hammers to let him go at the next opportunity.

The player is reportedly earning around £70,000 per week and his departure will free up wages for the London club and they can invest that money in a new signing, who could be more useful.

Despite his regression, Lanzini is still only 29 years old and has a few years left at the top level. If he can get his form and confidence back, he could be a useful option for many clubs.

West Ham’s reported asking price is not unreasonable and both sides hope a solution can be reached during the January transfer window so that West Ham can move on and the player can resurrect his career with a fresh start.
