As reported by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter last night, the Biancocelesti are currently in talks with the Hammers regarding the 28-year-old Brazilian winger, looking to sign him on a free transfer but give West Ham 50% of a future sale.
This would allow the East London club to save on his €4 million net per season salary, which they’re required to pay for another year with his contract expiring in 2022.
Felipe Anderson was sold by Lazio to West Ham in 2018 for around €40 million, so re-signing him on a free transfer only three years later represents a strong piece of business.
Lazio are also working to close out the deal for free agent Elseid Hysaj, whose contract expired with Napoli last week.
The Biancocelesti would like to secure Hysaj before the start of their pre-season training camp, which kicks off on 10th July.
