West Ham could finish up paying as much as €52 (£46m) million for Felipe Anderson if Lazio have their way!
Manuel Pellegrini’s No 1 pick and a player clearly on whom he wants to base a Hammers revolution will come at nearly double the fee which saw Mark Arnautovic arrive at the club last season for a club record £25 million.
With agents’ fees, the Hammers are staring at a bill of €52 million for the 25-year-old as Lazio continue to drive the hardest of bargains for their star man.
But the Hammers are determined to land the one player whom Pelle has made his dream signing.
We have had it confirmed that both the work permit for Anderson and his wages have now been agreed but there remain a couple of sticking points with the club.
