According to a report from the Daily Mail's live transfer blog (13/06; 16:48), West Ham have considered a potential move to sign Lazio full-back Jordan Lukaku as they continue talks to sign his teammate Felipe Anderson.

The Hammers are looking to follow up the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini by making some real statements in the transfer market following a season that saw the club considered potential relegation candidates for much of the campaign.

The Mail's live transfer blog (13/06; 16:48) listed the likes of Issa Diop, Lukasz Fabianski, Marlon Santos and Alfie Mawson amongst those that the Irons are considering moves for this summer, and of course, the Mail adds that they remain in talks with Lazio over a move for Brazilian playmaker Anderson.

However, he is not the only player that West Ham are discussing potentially signing from the Biancocelesti, with the Mail reporting that Lukaku - brother of Manchester United striker Romelu - has also been talked about.

Lukaku has struggled to establish himself in the Lazio side this past season. Though he made 30 Serie A appearances, he started just 10 times with Senad Lulic tending to hold down the left wing-back role in the side. 

West Ham are arguably looking fairly strong in that sort of area of the field, with Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku both available to Pellegrini. But perhaps the new Hammers boss believes that Lukaku would be a good addition as he seemingly targets a significant overhaul of the squad this summer.
