Video: Manuel Lanzini almost completes amazing piece of skill in West Ham United training, as teammates watch on

West Ham Tube Sign

Manuel Lanzini has made a brilliant start to his West Ham United career.

Maunel Lanzini has made quite the impression at West Ham United since signing this summer, and he once again showed his skill in training earlier today.

The Argentine midfielder attempted a rabona corner in training, and he almost managed to score from it, with the ball drifting just wide of the far post.

Lanzini's exasperation at missing the trick-shot was audible on the video, which West Ham posted on their official Twitter account, but the skill was still highly impressive.

He then followed up his corner practice by taking some free-kicks, and they were even more successful. 

Lanzini slammed three set-pieces into the back of the net, as he showed off his ability from dead-ball situations. 

Lanzini's creativity has been crucial to West Ham so far this season, and the attacking midfielder has quickly become a fans' favourite at Upton Park.

Most Hammers supporters knew little of Lanzini prior to his arrival, but he is quickly establishing a reputation as one of the most exciting talents in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old has already scored twice in seven appearances in England's top-flight, and appears to have coped with the transition with ease.

Lanzini will be hoping to continue his good form this weekend, as West Ham look to strengthen their position in the top-four by beating capital rivals Chelsea.
