West Ham have been extremely active in the transfer market this summer but their biggest deal in the club’s history is right around the corner.
The Sun state Felipe Anderson has arrived in London to undergo a medical with the Hammers on Friday, ahead of a club-record deal that could cost as much as £50m.
Anderson is set to become the Premier League’s biggest recruit of the summer so far and will take the number of West Ham signings up to six, following the captures of Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko earlier this week.
The report states West Ham’s deal is worth an initial £41m fee, with a further £6m in add-ons – taking the figure to almost double the £24m the Hammers paid for Issa Diop last month.
Capped once by Brazil, 25-year-old Anderson made 21 Serie A appearances last season – scoring four goals and contributing seven assists as the Rome-based side finished fifth in the league.
