West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern could be preparing themselves for some great news in the near future as Manuel Pellegrini looks to work his magic.
The Chilean, who joined the Hammers following the depart of David Moyes last month, is keen to bring in a number of big names this summer as he looks to get the Irons competing for European football playing attractive football.
According to Nicolo Schira, who is a reliable journalist for Gazzetta Dello Sport, has reported that the London Stadium outfit are close to completing a deal for SS Lazio’s Felipe Anderson.

The journalist claimed that the Brazil international is in advanced talks over a five-year deal, with a transfer fee of around 38 million euros to make the transfer happen.
The West Ham fans in the Tavern will have been surprised the club can get a deal of this magnitude done as there have been concerns over how ambitious the Hammers were willing to be with their recruitment drive.
The locals in the bar will be encouraged that Kia Joorabchian is involved with the deal, having previously worked with the club in regards to the transfers of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano, which surprised many of the football world.
