Felipe Anderson is close to joining West Ham
West Ham are working hard to finalise the club-record signing of Felipe Anderson, Sky sources understand.
Discussions remain ongoing between the clubs as they edge towards a final agreement over the transfer.
It is understood a fee has been agreed, but a number of other terms are yet to be finalised.
Personal terms between Anderson and West Ham are not expected to be a problem.
Lazio are yet to give the 25-year-old official permission to travel to London but if the terms are agreed later on Thursday, he could arrive for a medical in the next 48 hours.
If Anderson is signed, he would become West Ham’s sixth signing of the summer following the additions of Andriy Yarmolenko (Â£17.5m, Borussia Dortmund), Jack Wilshere (free), Ryan Fredericks (free), Lukasz Fabianski (Â£7m, Swansea) and Issa Diop (Â£22m rising to Â£25m, Toulouse).
The 25-year-old Anderson, capped once by Brazil, joined Lazio from Santos in 2013 and has since scored 34 goals in 177 appearances.
