Reports filtering through suggest that West Ham United may be thwarted in their attempts to bring Felipe Anderson to the club.

With Manuel Pellegrini keen to add some quality to the squad, the 25-year-old Brazilian, currently on the books of the Serie A side, Lazio, had appeared to be a viable target.

But things, according to the news source Express, are not going to plan.

It seems that the Hammers off of £33 million has been flatly rejected by the Italian club.

Devoid of Champions League football, next season, Lazio are keen to extract as much cash for the player as they can, to make up for the loss of a valuable revenue stream.

To that effect, Lazio are asking for a cool £43 million for a player who is also coveted by our fellow Premier League sides Southampton and Leicester.

Our view is, although West Ham United have aspirations of gate-crashing the so-called big six, at that price Andersen will not be making the move to the London Stadium.

Although a talented individual, I can’t see our board splashing that kind of cash on one player, can you?

  • No i cannot see them paying that for him !!
    But like most years we here these big signings spouted off in the press, when season ticket time comes around and every year it works for the board.
    Fredericks, Balotelli, Toure , Wilshire are good bets for us to sign on free transfers.
    If the ‘Sporting’ players revolt works out ….carvalho and bas dost…could be options on free transfers or cheap.
    To be fair if we got all those i would not complain……but i would like us to buy ‘Butland, Grealish, Maddison, Mawson, Gibson and Mario (back from Inter). They all know uk football and no settling in period required.
