Medical visits are starting today for the biancocelesti, starting with the technical staff. Tomorrow it will the turn of Simone Inzaghi and some of the new summer purchases that will have to do the Isokinetic tests. Then, it will be the big round – the full squad. In the lineup there is also Felipe Anderson (yesterday he was dribbling with Luiz Felipe in Lucas Leiva’s garden). At the moment his presence in the withdrawal of Auronzo di Cadore remains with a question mark… No more than yes, one would say.

The negotiation with West Ham have undergone an important acceleration yesterday afternoon, as from England they are sure that in the next few hours everything will be put in black and white. Felipe Anderson is set to become one of the most expensive purchases in the history of the Hammers.

There is talk of a 38 million pound (43 million euros) deal, plus bonuses: at this offer, West Ham comes very close to the requests made by the president of Lazio, Mr. Claudio Lotito. Still remaining is the polishing of some fine details with the salary of the player, who has made high demands.

Lazio is already looking around for a substitute, with Igli Tare looking to make a dream a reality. He is attempting to make a move for a Brazilian player that can be able to play on the wings, but also on the trocar, behind the striker – essentially someone that can replace Luis Alberto. The ideal candidate is that of Rafinha. The midfielder who is ready to leave Barcelona after not being given much of a chance. Inter’s interest is still strong on him as he played in Milan last year, but Lazio is at the window. If he does not arrive, the substitute for Felipe Anderson will have very similar characteristics.
