The Felipe Anderson deal was thought to be progressing well, but recently it has become clear that the demands of Lazio and what West Ham are willing to pay are far apart.
Jordan Lukaku, brother of Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku, was linked as part of a double-swoop, yet new developments suggest a Lukaku deal could be on the cards.
Coming from Italian newspaper Il Messaggero is the suggestion that Jordan Lukaku has been left out of Lazio’s pre-season training camp squad, as they head to Auronzo in their annual summer exercise. Felipe Anderson has been included but Lukaku’s omission indicates that a move could be close.
With the move for Felipe Anderson seemingly off the table for now, West Ham may try to wrap up a deal for the younger Lukaku brother, adding some strength and depth to their left side.
