West Ham are keen to save from paying his €4 million net per season salary. His current deal with the East London club expires next year in 2022.

The Biancocelesti have already agreed on personal terms with Felipe Anderson, with the player taking a pay cut down to €2.5 million net per season in order to re-join the Roman club.

Lazio sold the 28-year-old Brazilian to West Ham three years ago in the summer of 2018 for around €40 million, so re-signing him on a free transfer a few years later represents a strong piece of business.

Felipe Anderson had a tough season last campaign, only making five Liga NOS appearances for Porto whilst on loan.
