Report: West Ham reopen talks for Felipe Anderson

West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be pleased with the club’s summer work with regards to their recruitment drive and will be hopeful for a few more additions.

Manuel Pellegrini has been busy trying to make his side as strong as possible as they look to become competitive and compete for a place within European football next season.

The former Manchester City manager has already made a handful of signings this summer, however, according to reports in Italy, he could be on the verge of getting one of his most drawn-out sagas finally over the line.

Gianluca Di Marzio is claiming that the Hammers are back in negotiations with SS Lazio about a possible move for Felipe Anderson.

It is believed the two clubs are looking to conclude a deal around the 31million euro mark, with an additional 5million worth of bonuses to be paid should the 25-year-old make a certain number of appearances for the Irons.

The Verdict:

The deal is one of the most drawn-out transfers this summer and has looked unlikely at times to be completed. However, the fact that the two clubs have now reopened talks about a move could be the final push needed for the transfer to be concluded and comes at a lower price than West Ham were initially told to pay.

Anderson would be a smart signing for the Hammers this summer, as he and Jack Wilshere would work well together in the middle of the park and would be a huge upgrade to what the club had during their disappointing campaign last season.
