Ravel Morrison's West Ham future uncertain, Lazio linked with deal

Ravel Morrison has shown flashes of his talent while at West Ham.

Sam Allardyce has cast doubt over the future of Ravel Morrison at West Ham United amid reports the midfielder could be set to join Lazio.

Morrison, 21, signed for the Hammers from Manchester United in 2012 having courted controversy during his time at Old Trafford, where he made just three appearances.

The England under-21 international has since struggled to make an impact at Upton Park, starting 12 league games, and has been sent on loans to Birmingham, QPR and Cardiff.

The Telegraph reports Serie A side Lazio are in talks with West Ham over a deal for Morrison, while The Sun claims he is "on the verge" of a transfer.

Allardyce said in the Daily Mirror on Tuesday: "There's only a certain amount of times you can tell somebody what's the best way forward for them.

"He has to change his whole life and then, hopefully, he'll become the player he should be."

The Hammers boss added: "He's left himself in a very difficult position."

In November 2014, Morrison was cleared of charges that alleged he threatened to throw acid in the face of his former girlfriend and have her killed.
