West Ham rivalled by Monaco in race for Felipe Anderson

  West Ham rivalled by Monaco in race for Felipe Anderson West Ham are reportedly facing competition from AS Monaco in their pursuit of Lazio star Felipe Anderson. The Hammers have already made a hefty bid of €38m for Anderson, according to reports, but have seen their efforts rebuffed with Lazio keen to take a huge sum of €50m from the player’s potential sale. West Ham are not alone in their interest in Anderson. Recently, their fellow Premier League competitors Southampton and Leicester City have been linked. However, the latest side to be touted as a potential destination for Anderson is AS Monaco. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited in a report from Football Italia, the Lazio star has been lined up as a target by the French giants. The 25-year-old was used sparingly by Simone Inzaghi throughout last season at Lazio but still impressed when called upon. Anderson contributed, from only 32 appearances, with a respectable tally of eight goals along with 10 assists. Anderson is capable of playing both on the right wing or in the hole, meaning that his versatility would certainly be of benefit to a somewhat misfiring West Ham team. Although, it now seems as though they will be faced with a whole host of competitors for Anderson’s signature this summer.

West Ham United are very close to finalising a deal for Felipe Anderson from Lazio. The 25-year-old Brazilian was a transfer target for Southampton and Leicester City this summer, while Manchester United also chased him till last year.

According to the latest reports from TuttoMercatoWeb, Anderson 's agent Kia Joorabchia has held talks with Lazio owner Claudio Lotito to pave the way for a € 30 m deal with West Ham , with a further €8m in bonuses.

West Ham have agreed a deal to sign Lazio winger Felipe Anderson.

It is also claimed that further talks will be held on Thursday in order to bring the deal over the line this week.

West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for Anderson throughout the window and appear to have finally sealed a deal for the Brazilian.

With the news that Manuel Lanzini is set to miss the entirety of next season with a knee injury, the signing of Anderson has become doubly important.

West Ham 'very close' to signing Felipe Anderson

  West Ham 'very close' to signing Felipe Anderson West Ham are reportedly ‘very close’ to securing a deal for Lazio winger Felipe Anderson. The 25-year-old has been at Lazio since 2013, after joining from boyhood club Santos. Making 137 appearances in that time, the wide-man has gained a reputation as a flashy winger with a good end-product. The 2017/18 season saw Anderson spend more time than he would have liked on the bench, as 12 of his 21 Serie A appearances were as a substitute. With one Brazil cap to his name, the forward has done in enough in the minds of West Ham to demand a fee north of £30 million – and that could be a deal very close to happening. Sport Witness claim that Anderson is close to joining the East Londoners, with the fee supposedly in the region of £33.5 million. With new manager Manuel Pellegrini looking to inject the Hammers with superstar talent, Anderson’s arrival would be a serious statement for the future at the London Stadium.

Update: West Ham Agree € 30 m Payet Deal . Dimitri Payet seems on his way to the exit at West Ham United: the Hammers have reportedly agreed a deal with Olympique Marseille.

West Ham United have suddenly burst into life in the transfer window and reports claim they have agreed a club record deal for a Serie A striker.

He struggled for game-time last season at Lazio and will be hoping to find his feet in the Premier League and become a regular starter under Manuel Pellegrini.

West Ham are reportedly waiting for a response from Lazio after bidding for midfielder Felipe Anderson according to Il Tempo (via Sports Witness) The midfielder is subject to an offer of over €35 million with over €3 million in bonuses with a 10% of any future fee due to Lazio. The delay in the deal is down to Lazio seeking €40 million for the player, with West Ham looking to haggle the deal down to get the best deal for the Brazilian. Felipe Anderson would become West Ham’s fourth signing of the Summer, after they picked up Lukasz Fabianski and Ryan Fredericks, and also picked up Issa Diop for a club record fee. Felipe Anderson is a highly rated player in Italy, with Lazio already looking at targets to replace him. Former Sporting CP winger Gelson Martins and Bernard of Shakhtar Donetsk are two players being looked at by the Italian side.
