As reported by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter last night, the Biancocelesti have reached an agreement with the 28-year-old Brazilian winger regarding the contract he’d be given with the Roman club.
Talks are now ongoing between Lazio and West Ham regarding the details of the operation, which is expected to cost less than €7 million. The Brazilian winger’s contract with Lazio will expire in 2025 and be worth around €2.5 million net per season, a noticeable drop from the €4 million net plus add-ons that he currently earns in London (via Nicolò Schira)
The Biancocelesti sold Felipe Anderson to the Hammers three years ago in the summer of 2018 for a sum of around €40 million, a significant fee that he ultimately failed to live up to.
His time in East London has proven to be disappointing and so he’s ready to return to Rome, where he found more success and love from the fans.
The 28-year-old Brazilian had a difficult season last campaign, spending it on loan with Portuguese side Porto. He only made five Liga NOS appearances in total, failing to score a single goal.
