West Ham’s new midfielder signing Manuel Lanzini is vowing to give his “maximum” to the club this season.
Hammers’ new boss Slaven Bilic has wasted no time in making changes at Upton Park since replacing Sam Allardyce in the hot seat having already drafted in Darren Randolph, Pedro Obiang, Stephen Hendrie, Dimitri Payet, Angelo Ogbonna and Carl Jenkinson so far this summer.
And 22-year-old Argentine Lanzini has now arrived from United Arab Emirates club Al-Jazira, where he scored eight goals in 24 games last season.
West Ham’s co-chairman David Gold confirmed the arrival of former River Plate and Fluminense starlet, Lanzini.
I am someone who always gives 100 per cent. I’m an attacking player, I can change the game’s tempo and I hope to give my maximum for the fans to appreciate me.
Gold wrote on Twitter: “Manuel Lanzini an attacking midfielder has today signed for West Ham United. He’s nicknamed ‘the jewel’.”
Lanzini is relishing the prospect of testing his abilities in the Premier League and is looking to help the Londoners progress up the table.
“This is very emotional because it is one of the best teams I have ever signed for,” he told West Ham TV. “It is a very important step for my career and for my future.
“I am looking forward to what is a new era for me. I’m very happy and I look forward to meeting my new team-mates.
“This is a new challenge for me and that can only help in the future. It will test my ability in one of the best leagues in the world, so I am looking forward to getting started.
“I am someone who always gives 100 per cent. I’m an attacking player, I can change the game’s tempo and I hope to give my maximum for the fans to appreciate me.”
West Ham are 2.75 to finish in the top half of the Premier League this season, while they can be backed at 17.00 to secure a top-six spot.
