Lazio Agree to Pay West Ham €3m for Felipe Anderson, Italian Media Suggest

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio have agreed to pay West Ham €3 million for winger Felipe Anderson.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the Biancocelesti have been in talks with the Hammers constantly over the last few days, trying to reach an agreement regarding the 28-year-old Brazilian winger.

The agreement reached will cost Lazio €3 million, and there is a 50% future resale clause on the Brazilian winger, meaning West Ham could still earn more from the deal in the future.

The two parties are working quickly now to try and close out the deal as soon as possible. The Covid-19 situation and the spreading Delta variant mean that there is a mandatory five-day quarantine and a test from those arriving from Great Britain.

Closing the deal as soon as possible would allow Felipe Anderson to miss as little of the pre-season training camp as possible. The team will depart for the retreat on 10th July.

Coach Maurizio Sarri has been a fan of Felipe Anderson since his time with Napoli and is looking forward to finally working with the Brazilian winger.

Lazio are doing everything possible to finalise the deal as soon as possible, hoping to close everything by the end of the week or even sooner.

Felipe Anderson has agreed to half his salary in order to re-join Lazio, dropping down to €2 million net per season plus add-ons on a five-year contract.
