Lazio attacker Felipe Anderson is edging closer to joining West Ham this summer, as the Manuel Pellegrini revolution continues at the London Stadium.

The Hammers have agreed a club-record £35million deal with the Italian club for the right-winger, according to Sky Sports on their transfer centre blog (2:07pm, 12 July).

The 25-year-old is now reportedly set to jet out to London on Thursday to complete a medical and there is not expected to be an issue with personal terms.

Anderson is a versatile ace that can play anywhere across the frontline and was directly involved in 18 goals in just 32 games last season for Lazio, who finished fifth in Serie A.

The Brazilian is renowned for his pace and trickery, something that should make him become a big favourite with supporters.

Anderson just has the formalities of a medical to overcome before becoming a West Ham player and he will be experiencing his first taste of English football.

He will become the sixth signing made by Pellegrini if he does complete a transfer to England and will hope to be the latest Brazilian to dazzle in the Premier League.
