West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will want to get things sorted as soon as possible as this particular transfer saga continues to take a different turn each day.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini has been rather active in the transfer window this summer since being announced as the new Hammers boss – however, there appears to be one particular deal that he is struggling to get over the line.
Felipe Anderson has been talked about for a couple of weeks already, and Lazio are thought to be holding out for a fee of around £35 million for the Brazil international, which has seemingly caused the negotiations to stumble.
However, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph, West Ham are now said to be increasingly optimistic that they can get it done, with the East London outfit reportedly believing that there is a ‘big chance’ of it happening.
And this positive update is likely to thrill our resident Hammers fans, as their side seek to continue building an impressive squad ahead of the 2018/19 Premier League season.
Landlord’s Verdict: The West Ham fans in the Tavern will be hoping that they can finally land their man after weeks of talks.
The winger would be one of the signings of the summer should it go through and the locals would be delighted to see him playing at the London Stadium next season if it did happen.
However, some of the punters will wait to see this huge deal confirmed before they get all excited.
West Ham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
