West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will have been excited about the prospect of some top names joining them this summer, however, one name is proving to be more difficult to get.
Felipe Anderson has been linked with a move to the Hammers for the majority of the summer since the arrival of Manuel Pellegrini, however, a move has been found difficult to agree.
All aspects of the move are thought to be ready to be confirmed, despite the fee between the two parties, with SS Lazio wanting more than the Irons are currently prepared to offer.
However, according to a report by Tuttomercatoweb, West Ham may have been given the final push needed to get a transfer over the line, as it is thought Anderson will tell the Serie A outfit he wants to leave.
The attacking midfielder is due back in Italy following his summer break and it is being claimed that he will tell the Italian side about his desire to quit.
West Ham fans in the Tavern will just want this particular deal to be finalised and done as it has continued to play out of the course of the summer. The suggestion that Anderson could be about to force the move to happen will only satisfy the locals and they will be starting to get excited with what the Brazil international can bring to the London Stadium.
