Manuel Lanzini drops hint about his West Ham future whilst discussing Olympic Stadium

Olympic Stadium 2

Manuel Lanzini is looking forward to West Ham's arrival at the Olympic Stadium.

West Ham playmaker Manuel Lanzini has raved about the Olympic Stadium in an interview with the club's official website, dropping a possible hint about his future in the process.

The Argentine star, 22, is currently on a season-long loan with the Hammers having signed from United Arab Emirates club Al-Jazira over the summer.

So far, the former River Plate man has made a huge impression during his time at Upton Park, having scored five goals and notched one assist so far.

Fans are keen to see Lanzini stay at Upton Park beyond the expiration of his loan deal, but are currently dealing with his absence, given that the midfielder has suffered a thigh injury and is currently on the sidelines.

Lanzini will return and look to recapture his best form under Slaven Bilic, and if he continues to do that, a permanent stay will be on the cards - but it won't be at Upton Park.

West Ham leave Upton Park next summer in order to move in to the Olympic Stadium, which is seen as being the springboard for future success in East London.

Lanzini went to the Olympic Stadium last week, and told the club's official website that he was impressed with the stadium - before stating that he's looking forward to enjoying success and playing there, suggesting that he sees his long-term future in claret and blue.

"It is a very impressive stadium, not only the stands and the pitch but all the other facilities; they are just excellent," said Lanzini. "I think the move is really going to give West Ham a boost and that is obviously very important. I really think the fans and the players will enjoy it and I’m sure we’ll have some successful years in the near future."

"Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to play in some fantastic stadiums so far, I think this stadium is going to be absolutely incredible, all footballers will want to come and play here and it’ll help the Club grow. One of the most important things is that the fans, I’m sure, are going to enjoy coming here, and we’re going to be relaxed about putting on a really good show," he added.
