West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has said that the club has an “unbreakable option” to sign Manuel Lanzini, according to the Mirror.
The Argentinian midfielder has been in fine form since moving to Upton Park on a temporary basis during the close season, scoring four goals in twelve appearances in all competitions.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the twenty-two year old, though Sullivan has said that there is not threat from interest that comes in elsewhere as the Hammers have first refusal.
Lanzini began his career in his native Argentina with River Plate, moving to his parent club Al Jazira in the United Arab Emirates in 2014, while he also spent a season on loan at Brazilian outfit Fluminense early on.
West Ham United travel to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon, and Lanzini can be backed at a price of 12/1 to get the first goal of the game.
