West Ham midfielder Lanzini says they'll challenge for Europe

West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini says they'll challenge for Europe this season.

Lanzini put pen to paper on a new four-year contract at the end of last week.

The 26-year-old believes the Irons have the talent, the depth and the attitude required to upset the established 'big six' this term.

“Of course [we want to challenge for a top-six finish]!" he said, with typical determination. “It is the ambition of all of us and the Club, but we must work hard because every team wants this and the Premier League is hard, but we need believe in ourselves and we can achieve this.

“We have a lot of very good attacking players. We need to work hard because the ambition is to go to the Europa League and we need to concentrate on this."
