Lazio are keen on bringing Felipe Anderson back to the club from West Ham United this summer.

On June 3rd, Corriere dello Sport reported the winger remains hopeful of sealing a Hammers exit by the 10th of July and it was also stated that €7m ‘could be enough’ for Lazio to close the deal.

Multiple reports coming out of Italy are now stating the 28-year-old’s return to old club is ‘getting closer’.

According to, the Brazilian has found an agreement with Lazio and is now putting pressure on David Moyes’ side to sanction his transfer.

It’s claimed the deal should go through for ‘small compensation’ and a ‘fairly large percentage’ of a future sale in favour of the Premier League side.

For the ‘white smoke’, apart from the two clubs finding an agreement, Maurizio Sarri’s ‘final judgment’ on the player is ‘awaited’. Unless there are any last-minute surprises, there should be positive news on this front.

Sky Italia also explain the South American is ‘getting closer and closer’ to sealing a return to the Italian capital club.

The deal is expected to go through for ‘minimum compensation’ with West Ham having an ‘important percentage’ from the player’s future sale.

The same report explains the former Chelsea manager, who ‘followed him with interest’ from his time at Napoli, has given his approval to sign Anderson for Lazio.
