West Ham have succeeded in their quest to remain in the Premier League and will now be preparing for a different sort of challenge in the transfer market.

The Hammers have plenty of work to do this summer to rejuvenate their under-performing side but may have to fend off interest in some of their prized assets.

One man attracting plenty of interest is Argentina World Cup hopeful Manuel Lanzini, who continues to be linked with a move to Champions League finalists Liverpool.

The Reds reportedly want the South American to replace Philippe Coutinho, who left for Barcelona in January, and the prospect of European football may appeal to Lanzini.

While West Ham will be determined to keep the highly-rated midfielder at the club, fans are concerned that his head could be turned by the interest – and the World Cup in Russia could give him the platform to increase the attention on his services.
