The Hammers have reportedly moved very close to wrapping up the signing of the Brazilian international for a £26m fee
West Ham could complete the signing of Felipe Anderson from Lazio today, according to reports.
Anderson, the Brazil attacker, has been eyed by recently appointed Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini as another new reinforcement, following the signing of Ryan Fredericks from Fulham , who will join the east London club when his Fulham contract expires at the end of the month.
And now, Gianluca Di Marzio report that the deal is so close to completion it could actually be finalised today.
It is said Lazio will receive a fee of around £26m (€30m) for Anderson, while there will also be a 20 per cent sell-on clause inserted into the contract.
The Serie A club’s sporting director, Igli Tare, will reportedly be in London today to close the deal with West Ham chiefs.

Anderson, 25, has caught the eye for a number of years with some brilliant performances for Lazio. He has scored 34 goals and created a further 42 in 177 appearances for the Rome club, earning links to some of Europe’s biggest clubs .
Primarily an attacking midfield, Anderson can also cover the right wing and centre-forward position, and he’s earned one cap for Brazil, which came in a friendly defeat of Brazil in June 2015.
