West Ham are said to be closing in on the signing of Felipe Anderson after agreeing a fee with Lazio.

Sky Italia claims the Hammers met the Serie A club in Rome on Wednesday when the two clubs agreed terms.

It is said West Ham will pay around £26million for the Brazilian, while Lazio retain a 20 per cent sell-on clause.

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is due in London on Thursday to wrap up the deal.

The 25-year-old once-capped Brazil attacking midfielder made 32 appearances in all competitions for Lazio last season, scoring eight goals and offering eight assists.

Anderson, who joined Lazio from Santos in 2013, is said to have been offered £80,000 a week to join the Hammers.
