Liverpool are looking to sign on-loan West Ham ace Manuel Lanzini, according to reports.

The 22-year-old, nicknamed the Little Jewel, has sparkled for the Hammers since joining on a year-long loan from Al-Jazira in the summer.

West Ham are currently trying to make the transfer permanent, but Bleacher Report says Liverpool are looking to beat them to his signature.

It’s claimed the Reds have asked to be kept up to date with developments and hope to do business when the transfer window re-opens.

Lanzini, a creative play-maker, has scored five goals in 14 games this term while also racking up two assists.
