Liverpool guns for West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini as Man City aims for Crystal Palace’s star Wilfried Zaha

LIVERPOOL are eyeing a move for West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini, according to reports.

The Reds have been in the market for a new playmaker since Philippe Coutinho’s club-record departure to Barcelona in January.
And Argentinian outlet Ole claim Lanzini, 25, is back on Jurgen Klopp’s radar.

Lyon star Nabil Fekir has also been strongly linked with a move to Anfield.

But Lanzini would represent a cheaper alternative and the Argie international has shown good form for West Ham.

He has provided five goals and six assists for the struggling Hammers this season and could fancy a move to a bigger club.

Meanwhile, The newly-crowned champions have been scouting the Crystal Palace ace, who has fired Roy Hodgson’s side into the top half.
And Sky Sports claims City have asked to be kept informed of any developments if the Ivory Coast winger decides to leave this summer.

Zaha, 25, has scored in five of his last six games and looks to finally be fulfilling his potential after flopping at Manchester United.

But he insists interested parties are barking up the wrong tree as he is happy at Selhurst Park.

After the final day win over West Brom, Zaha said: “I have no plans on leaving.
“I’m enjoying my football, you can see how much I’m enjoying it.

“This is my home and there’s no reason for me to leave.”
Zaha signed a five-year Palace deal last summer and boss Hodgson is not planning to lose his key man.

The former England chief said: “Wilf knows exactly how we value him as a player and as a person because he’s an important figure for us.
