​Bilic issues hands-off notice over West Ham midfielder Lanzini

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic says Manuel Lanzini will stay at the club this season amid links with Liverpool.

"I speak to Manu every day. He is very happy, he feels at home here and he feels wanted," said Bilic. "You can feel it, you can see it. I don't have to talk to him. You see how he is smiling here."

"He broke into the national team of Argentina despite being injured, he got a call up for the September games. So he knows if he is playing here for West Ham and has a good season, he can improve, sign a better contract with West Ham and play for Argentina," added Bilic.
