West Ham look to be close to finalising a deal for Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson, according to Sky in Italy.
Representatives from both clubs met in Rome on Wednesday to agree a fee in the region of £26m - plus 20 per cent of the fee from a future sale.
Sky in Italy understand Lazio sporting director Igli Tare will fly to London on Thursday to conclude a deal.
Anderson is keen to move to the Premier League and personal terms are close to being agreed on a deal worth a reported £80,000 a week.
The Brazil midfielder, who has one cap for his country, joined Lazio from Santos for £6.75m in 2013.
He made 32 appearances for Lazio last season as the club missed out on a Champions League spot on the final day of the Serie A campaign.
Anderson has made 177 appearances across five seasons for Lazio, scoring 34 goals and providing 42 assists.
