West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold have been promising supporters the move to the London Stadium would enable them to compete in the transfer market for players of Felipe Anderson's ilk.

But what has turned into something of a transfer saga between West Ham and Lazio for the talented Brazilian might have taken an unexpected twist.

According to reports West Ham representatives took matters into their own hands at the weekend and jetted off to Italy to try and finalise the Anderson deal at around £35 million, as previously reported by HITC.com.

But Lazio allegedly keep moving the goalposts in negotiations while the Hammers also tried to add Jordan Lukaku - brother of Romelu - to the deal - as reported by Italian newspaper La Republica.

New rumours gathering pace online claim Lazio, not keen to lose Lukaku as well as Anderson, have tried to send flop Ravel Morrison back to West Ham, as reported by The West Ham Way fans' site.

Morrison moved to Italy in 2015 after falling out of favour with the Hammers but has only made four appearances for the Serie A side and has been loaned out to QPR and Mexican side Atlas since.

Morrison enjoyed a meteoric rise at West Ham with his brilliant solo goal against bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur cementing his place in Hammers folklore.

Morrison keeps a keen eye on his old club and often wishes them well on social media and fans' forums.

But rumours Lazio wanted to include the 25-year-old in the Anderson deal met with mixed reaction on Twitter.
