West Ham have started the season very strongly in Manuel Pellegrini’s second season in charge.

The Chilean has overseen eight games in the Premier League so far and only lost two of those, going on a six-game unbeaten run in between.

However, as Pellegrini looks to extend the strong start to the season, a report has surfaced from Football London News that QPR’s Ryan Manning is on the Hammers’ radar.

The young left-back has been in scintillating form this season, which we’ll go into, although his contract at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium expires next summer, meaning he can soon be snapped up on a free.

To elaborate on Manning’s form, the Irishman has managed three assists in 11 games this season whilst averaging 2.3 tackles, 1.3 interceptions as well as 2.3 key passes per game, via WhoScored.

However, both Southampton and Newcastle are also linked with the Championship ace, as per Football Insider, so if West Ham want him they may have to act fast.

Meanwhile, QPR fans have been in the comments raving about the youngster’s fast start to the season and all seem to rate him very highly, with certain fans not at all pleased that he’s being linked with a move away.
