Report: Lazio and Napoli pass on Hammer

Felipe Anderson will not be joining Napoli or Lazio with both clubs set to pass on the West Ham midfielder  claims the Daily Star

The Hammers will listen to offers for the 27-year-old midfielder this summer and have asked agents to put feelers out to clubs to gauge interest

The tabloid says Napoli have now told West Ham he is no longer of interest, and it is understood Lazio will do likewise.

Napoli have just brought in Lille striker Victor Osimhen in a mega-deal which could one day be worth £72m.

Lazio are on the verge of announcing signing David Silva instead and will not pursue their interest in the Brazilian playmaker.

The Hammer posted a photo of himself on social media in Rome earlier this week told La Lazio Siamo Noi   translated by SportsWitness:

“I am staying in Sardinia for another five days, I miss Rome, before coming here I was a few days in the capital with my friends since I had been missing for two years.

“Lazio is always in my heart; I cheer for my teammates. They were five wonderful years.

“Future? I don’t know, my head is at West Ham but let’s see what happens.

“A message to the Lazio fans? Thank you for your support. I send you a hug.”

Felipe’s brother Julian also denied a report suggesting he was in Rome engineering a move back to Lazio saying it was ‘not true’

he players need to report back for training on Monday 17th August after three weeks holiday.

  1. Anderson, after having amply demonstrated “his talents”, will be hugely difficult to get shot of !

  2. The only way we will shift him is to take a huge hit on the asking price simply because he has been awful this season.Looks disinterested,lazy and lacking any sort of confidence which are not good characteristics when a club is looking to buy a player.

  3. Massively over-rated, poorly scouted player on inflated wages = no-one else is stupid enough to make the same mistake. Even if there is zerotransfer fee, the guy’s wages!!! Moyes would never have even looked at him. This is going to take some time. But the club is surely going in a better, more cost-effective direction. I hope Dec doesn’t go but if he does, I’d make Soucek captain.

  4. Looks like he’ll be on the subs bench till end of contract. Bad news for all. He’s more suited to Italian or Spanish football. Or even Latin American but can’t see anyone coughing the money.
