The 28-year-old was working on collecting bonuses owed to him by the Hammers over the past few days, who were not keen on paying the extra cash. This was the reason for the delay in his arrival.
Felipe Anderson will sign a four-year contract until 2025 with Lazio. The deal for the player was essentially a free transfer as West Ham owed the Biancocelesti €3 million from his move to the Premier League side back in 2018. However, a 50% future resale clause was negotiated into this deal.
