West Ham looking to conclude deal for Felipe Anderson

  West Ham looking to conclude deal for Felipe Anderson West Ham United are reportedly hoping to conclude a deal with Lazio over the signing of Felipe Anderson in the near future. According to claims from Italian news outlet TMW, representatives from West Ham will stage negotiations with Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito to hold further negotiations over a deal for Anderson. The Hammers have been chasing a deal for the Brazilian playmaker for some time now and it seems they have entered the final stages of a deal. Talks have recently been at an impasse as West Ham aim to lower Lazio’s valuation of Anderson, which is believed to be set at a huge price of €45 million. However, it appears as though a conclusion is close to being reached, as talks are scheduled to continue on Friday evening between the two clubs. The deal for Anderson is set to go down as the club’s most expensive in its history, surpassing the fee spent on Toulouse centre-back Issa Diop earlier this summer.

The versatile Brazilian will become West Ham’s most expensive ever signing by some margin, following the arrival of Issa Diop from Toulouse for £22.5 million earlier on this summer.

Chelsea ready to enter the race to sign Anderson

  Chelsea ready to enter the race to sign Anderson West Ham are bracing themselves for competition from Chelsea in the race to sign Felipe Anderson from Lazio. Il Tempo, as cited on Sport Witness, claims that the Blues are readying a €30 million offer as they look to prepare for the arrival of Maurizio Sarri. Sarri is expected to take over from Antonio Conte in the coming days and is a known admirer of Anderson. West Ham have been heavily linked with a move for Anderson throughout the summer window, but the two sides are yet to agree on a fee. The player is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League, but the lengthy negotiations are slowing down the deal. It is yet to be seen how serious Chelsea’s interest is, with Lazio already demanding closer to €40 million from West Ham, with the latter looking to complete a double deal for Anderson and defender Jordan Lukaku.

West Ham are edging closer to the signing of Felipe Anderson from Lazio. The midfielder is the subject of advanced talks between the two clubs, who are working to negotiate a fee.

Anderson has been courted by a number of clubs in recent times but West Ham have evidently stolen a march on their fellow competitors and will recruit the player in a club-record deal.

The playmaker, who is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder and on the right, is likely to pass his medical examinations at West Ham without any complications.
