West Ham are in talks to sign Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson, according to Sky sources.

It is understood that Lazio want €50m (£44m), which is much higher than West Ham's valuation of the player.

One source has told Sky Sports News that they are hopeful that a deal can be done but claims there is interest in the 25-year-old from other clubs.

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 season.
