As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Biancocelesti’s front three may be Felipe Anderson–Ciro Immobile–Brandt, with the club hoping to build this before the start of the pre-season training camp in Auronzo di Cadore.
Sarri has been a fan of Felipe Anderson since his time in charge of Empoli and Napoli, and may finally get his man now, with West Ham keen to sell the Brazilian forward.
The current price set by the Hammers is €8 million, a figure that falls within Lazio’s budget, and the player’s willingness to lower his salary makes the deal even more achievable.
The Bundesliga outfit want around €25-30 million for the player and there is room for negotiations, with a loan deal with a buy obligation attached being one possibility.
The key to closing these deals may be the departure of Argentinian forward Joaquin Correa, with Paris Saint-Germain ready to offer €35-40 million for the player in order to fight off Arsenal and Tottenham.
