West Ham are believed to have offered Manuel Lanzini a new long-term deal to rebuff interest in their star man from Liverpool and Tottenham.

Lanzini has been the bright spark for the Hammers so far this season, scoring three and laying on five goals for his team-mates, despite missing 10 games through injury.

There are a number of top clubs who have been alerted to the Argentine, with Liverpool and Spurs both reportedly keen.

Jurgen Klopp is keen to bolster his attacking ranks after losing Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January.

The 25-year-old midfielder still has two years left on his current deal with the Hammers, but the Evening Standard say he will be offered a new bumper deal as soon as the club secure their Premier League status for another season.

The Hammers looked to be heading for the Championship under Slaven Bilic during the early stages of the season, but results have improved under David Moyes, who took over in November, and Premier League safety is very much in their hands.
