Incoming West Ham signing was once on his way to Manchester United

West Ham are set to sign the Brazilian from Lazio this summer.

West Ham United are on the verge of agreeing on a deal to sign Felipe Anderson from Lazio, according to Sky Italia.

The report claims that the Hammers have agreed a £26 million fee to sign the player with Lazio’s sporting director Igli Tare set to arrive in London today to conclude a deal.

The report claims personal terms are nearly agreed and the Brazilian will sign a deal worth £80k-a-week.

It will be a massive marquee signing for West Ham, with Anderson a fantastic talent who has previously been linked with a big-money move to England.

Back in 2016, one year after a first failed attempt to sign him, Manchester United launched a massive bid to bring Anderson to Old Trafford.

As reported by the Mirror the Italian side claimed that a £47 million fee had been agreed between both clubs to see Anderson head to Manchester. The deal was set to be confirmed in the summer of 2016. However, Louis van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho that summer and any deal for Anderson fell away.

West Ham are therefore getting their hands on an incredible signing. Now fully fit after an abductor tear that saw him struggle at the start of the season West Ham will be signing a brilliant player.
