Lanzini in Line for New Deal to Fend Off Interest From Turkey
We start off with a nasty little transfer rumour surrounding Argentine midfielder Manuel Lanzini and Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
Lanzini was absent for the majority of last season as he recovered from a serious knee ligament injury, much to the chagrin of Hammers fans up and down the land – and me. He returned towards the end of the campaign and as he started to regain fitness, and promising showings followed.
Because of that, interest has perked up abroad – and the Mirror claim that Fenerbahce are keen to snatch him away from the London Stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini is said to be a fan, though, so the Hammers are planning on offering him a new five-year deal, even though he has a two-year option on his current deal that expires next summer.
Adrian Posts Emotional Goodbye to Fans
Outside of east London, Adrian is just a run of the mill goalkeeper.
After six years, though, his adventure at the club is all over after it was announced he will leave the club at the end of June and in true Adrian style, he’s reached out to the fans in an emotional Instagram post.
“Today is the sixth anniversary of my arrival in London to proudly defend the Hammers shirt, a fortunate and happy time that has helped me grow as a person and also a footballer.
“Today, six years later, I can tell you that I have always hoped to continue with West Ham but the circumstances of football have led me to seek a new direction. That is my objective right now but I must not forget a time that has been so successful for my family and me.
“It’s said that footballers and clubs pass and that is how it is. But when one has found oneself at home, one must recognise it and show gratitude.
