| sbobet asia Manuel Pellegrini wants to bring a marquee signing to the London Stadium and believes the Brazilian fits the bill. West Ham are ready to strike a club-record £30.8m deal to bring Felipe Anderson to east London from Lazio this summer in a statement signing by Manuel Pellegrini.
The Hammers and Lazio will meet next week in Rome as the Londoners take their first steps towards sealing a deal that will eclipse the £25m paid for Marko Arnautovic last summer from Stoke City. Anderson, according to the Guardian, wants a move to London and West Ham co-owner David Sullivan is ready to back his new manager to the sum of more than £30m plus add-ons to bring the Brazilian to the capital.
Anderson has emerged as a key target after Javier Pastore has seemingly refused to drop sbobet asia his €180,000 a week at the French champions Paris St Germain, pricing himself out of a move to the London Stadium.
Pellegrini wants to add pace to his team, he has already done that with the signing of free agent right back Ryan Fredericks who is certainly no slouch, and now Anderson fits the bill but what that means for the future of Michail Antonio remains to be seen.
The representatives of Anderson met with his current club on Thursday and news has emerged from Italy that the seemingly inevitable departure is on its way - for the right prive. West Ham's keenness to get a deal done quickly has left them in pole position.
The Chilean manager has been handed a warchest of around £75m sbobet asia this summer and has yet to spend a penny of it thanks to the free capture of Fredericks from Fulham and has been linked with swoops for Barcelona defender Marlon Santos and Genoa's Armando Izzo.
