With the Hammers support keeping a watchful eye on the transfer speculation linking new arrivals with the club, West Ham’s attempts to bring Felipe Anderson to the club continue in earnest.
It’s a transfer we’ve already spoken about on Vital West Ham, Click Here, in an article published earlier this month.
However, with the club looking to break their transfer record to sign Anderson, it appears that although a deal hasn’t, as of yet, been done, it is edging closer.
According to the new source, the Daily Mail, the Hammers have offered Lazio £25 million plus a further £5 million in add-ons for the Brazilian.
Lazio, however, values the player at £35 million so there is still some hard negotiations to be done to lock down the deal.
However, looking through several tweets left on the above subject matter, I have to admit the following did bring a smile to my face:

Both show the pessimistic attitude that has become a Hammers trademark in recent times when it comes to transfers.
But, here at Vital West Ham, we agree with the following tweet:
Actually think Anderson will happen but will really drag out (fans need to stop panicking)
