Manuel Lanzini is an exciting Argentina international attacking midfielder who has got West Ham United fans off their seats regularly since joining the Club in summer 2015.

Nicknamed La Joya, Spanish for 'The Jewel', the playmaker learned his trade at River Plate in his native Buenos Aires, where he won the Torneo Final title in 2014 - two years after winning the Campeonato Carioca and Brasileiro Serie A during a season on loan with Brazilian side Fluminense.

Lanzini moved to the UAE Arabian Gulf League with Al Jazira Club in 2014, where he again excelled before being loaned to the Hammers. The 2016/17 Players' Player of the Year made his move to east London permanent, before making his senior debut for Argentina against Brazil in June 2017.
