Report: Leicester/Saints join race for Irons target

West Ham target Felipe Anderson is now being linked with Leicester City and Southampton.

According to Tuttosport the 25 year old Lazio winger – who is very much on the Irons radar – could be sold because of the Serie A outfit missing out on a Champions League place next season after finishing fifth last season.

The reports claim that  a fee of around £35 million will be involved but that may be over cooking things given the interest is coming from middle range Premier League clubs.

Anderson scored eight goals and added 10 assists in 32 games for the Serie A side last season.

He was once seen as one of the brightest prospects in the game and was previously linked with Manchester United.

Anderson, who can also play in the number 10 role, impressed in the second half of last season after being ruled out until November due to a hip injury.

  1. This guy is overpriced £35m for a player that cost £5m 8 goals and 10 assists seems like an agent hawking meat around a market. If he only has one cap unless he has an ancestral visa could be a long drawn out affair also maybe ?
