Mauricio Pochettino is monitoring the progress of West Ham star Manuel Lanzini.

The Tottenham boss is a big fan of the 24-year-old playmaker and has been ever since Lanzini scored against his team at White Hart Lane two years ago.

Although the relationship between the neighbouring London clubs is not a good one, Pochettino has kept tabs on his £35,000-a-week Argentinean countryman ever since.

Lanzini continues to be among West Ham’s best players, one around whom new boss David Moyes will be keen to build. But he has been coveted by a number of clubs.
