West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be excited with what Manuel Pellegrini has already achieved at the London Stadium and will be interested to see what he can continue to bring.
The Hammers boss has already been able to bring a couple of additions to his side, with the likes of Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks and Issa Diop to the club, however, it does not appear that he is content with what he has already completed.
The Irons have been linked with a move for SS Lazio’s Felipe Anderson for what feels an eternity, however, it now appears that a possible move is on the verge of being completed.
According to Nicolo Schira, who is a reputable journalist for Gazzetta Dello Sport, a deal for the Brazilian is almost done, with just one minor thing left to sort out.
Last night news talks between #WestHam and #Lazio for Felipe #Anderson. The player wants to join Hammers. Only problem is about % of future sell. For everything else they are advanced talks to finalize the deal. Felipe’ll sign 5-years contract (€3,5M at year) #transfers #WHUFC

It is being stated that the player wants to move to the London Stadium and has already committed to a five-year deal, however, the problem remains with the percentage of any possible sell on.
The West Ham fans in the Tavern will be delighted that the transfer saga surrounding Anderson is finally closing in, however, some of the locals will be concerned that they have been there all before.
Should a deal be around the corner, it will be considered one of the signings of the summer and the residents will be excited to see the Brazil international in the Hammers line up as he can bring a lot of versatility and creativity to the side.
