West Ham ready to sell £36m flop Felipe Anderson back to Lazio with ‘negotiations already underway’


LAZIO are reportedly in talks to sign Felipe Anderson for a fraction of the £36million fee West Ham paid for the winger.

The Brazilian was tipped to light up the Premier League after starring in Italy, yet has hit just 12 goals in three years.

West Ham allowed Anderson, 28, to spend the 2020-21 season on loan at Porto but he again failed to find form.

A summer exit is on the cards with Sky Sport Italia detailing Lazio’s bid.

The Serie A outfit are hoping to do a deal for £8.5m and talks are said to already be underway between the player’s camp and Aquile sporting director Igli Tare.

Maurizio Sarri takes charge of the club for the new season and has reportedly given his blessing to the deal.

But player sales may have to be completed first, even though Anderson’s fee will be reduced by his contract expiring in just a year’s time.

The 28-year-old led Lazio to a Supercoppa Italiana crown after an appearance in the 2017 Coppa Italia final during his five years in Rome.

Borussia Dortmund forward Julian Brandt and Bologna’s Riccardo Orsolini are also named as on the club’s shortlist.

West Ham could use the funds to help their bid for Jesse Lingard, following his impressive loan spell from Manchester United.

Jadon Sancho’s long-awaited move to Old Trafford is said to be holding up their pursuit of the midfielder.

David Moyes is linked with a wide range of targets ahead of the Hammers’ Europa League campaign.

Fiorentina star Nikola Milenkovic is reportedly one option in defence with Martin Braithwaite touted for a move from Barcelona to bolster the West Ham frontline.
