I want you + directional particle Remember "here" has two meanings: 1. Place I am here. I'm standing here. 2. Direction. Come here. Move it here. I want you here. = direction here Likewise: I want you there. I want that table in the corner. I want you off the roof! I want you all out of here!

"I want you here" is perfectly correct: subject-verb-object-location.

Both are correct.
