Tottenham are monitoring the progress of West Ham playmaker Manuel Lanzini according to reports today.

Lanzini has been a target for Spurs' manager ever since he scored for the Hammers in North London two years ago.

Spurs were given another taste of what the Argentinian can do this season when he led the Hammers' comeback in the 3-2 Carabao Cup win over Tottenham with two assists.

However, getting the 24-year-old out of West Ham could be a challenge.

West Ham would be loath to lose him, though-let alone to their bitter rivals-so while an exit to a bigger club appears likely, landing him might be hard for Tottenham. New West Ham boss David Moyes is expected to want to build his team around Lanzini.

Liverpool were heavily linked with a move for Lanzini in the summer after Jurgen Klopp identified the player as a possible replacement for Philippe Coutinho.

Lanzini is also now on a deal at West Ham which sees him earn £35,000-a-week and considering his quality, he has the potential to earn at least double that which is what clubs are more than likely to offer him.

But amid the east Londoners' poor start to the campaign and Slaven Bilic's dismissal as manager those talks have subsided leading to fresh scrutiny over the two-and-a-half seasons remaining on his contract.

They then turned their attention to Gylfi Sigurdsson, who completed a move from Swansea.
