West Ham United are taking matters into their own hands to seal a double transfer deal according to reports from Italy.
The 25-year-old winger scored seven goals and provided 12 assists in an injury-hit season for Lazio last term during which he helped the Rome club to the Europa League quarter-finals.
The potential transfers, particularly that of Anderson, have had more twists and turns than the Orbital Tower outside the London Stadium.
But now West Ham's directors - most likely new director of football Mario Husillos rather than co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold - will take matters into their own hands to get the deals over the line by jetting to Italy on Friday, as claimed by Sportitalia and reported by Football Italia.
"As for Izzo, the centre-back has also been linked with Sassuolo, but West Ham have climbed to the front of the queue. Including bonuses, Izzo should end up costing around £9million."
