The Hammers completed two signings earlier this week in Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and Toulouse defender Issa Diop, adding them to right back Ryan Fredericks.
West Ham are still in the market for new signings though, and one of their top targets of the last two weeks has been Lazio wide man Felipe Anderson, with Manuel Pellegrini seemingly keen to lure the Brazilian to East London.
Now, Italian newspaper La Repubblica report that a move for Anderson may in fact now be a double deal, as left back Jordan Lukaku could also end up joining the Hammers.
It's claimed that a deal for Anderson is close at around €40million (£35million), though whilst negotiating the sell-on clause involved, the clubs have now discussed Lukaku being added into the deal.
However, there is another disagreement between the two clubs, as Lazio feel that another €20million (£17.5million) should be added to the Anderson fee, whereas West Ham would prefer to be €10million (£8.75million).
With Lazio signing Real Betis left back Riza Durmisi, Lukaku is available this summer, but it remains to be seen whether West Ham can strike a deal with Lazio for both targets after tough negotiations recently.
Lukaku, 23, is the brother of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, and missed out on Belgium's World Cup squad after just 10 league starts for Lazio last season, but he could offer Pellegrini an attacking option at left back to compete with Aaron Cresswell, allowing Arthur Masuaku to play further forward.
