West Ham are in advanced talks to sell Felipe Anderson back to Lazio, three years after the midfielder left the Serie A club.

In 2018, Anderson moved to West Ham for a club-record £36m deal, signing a four-year contract.

Initially, he was a regular for West Ham, making 36 Premier League appearances in 2018-19, but he fell out of favour upon David Moyes' return to the club as manager.

The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Porto where he played only 10 times in all competitions, while the Hammers were challenging for a top-four place under Moyes.

According to Sky Italy, Lazio - who are now managed by former Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri - will pay €3m (£2.6m) and West Ham will have a 50 per cent sell-on clause.

The Brazilian spent five seasons playing for Lazio from 2013 to 2018, having moved to Italy from Santos.
