London Rivals Set to Hijack Chelsea Move for €41m Serie A No.10

July 13, 2018

West Ham United are poised to sign Chelsea long-term target Felipe Anderson.

Manuel Pellegrini looks to strengthen the Hammers offensive end ahead of the next season and Brazilian forward has been on top of their wishlist.

Chelsea have also shown interest in Brazilian forward and have been set for transfer talks with Serie A outfits Lazio.

However, CalcioMercato add Chelsea will ultimately be outbid by their London rivals West Ham United.

And it appears they are on the brink to completing a move to bring Brazilian winger to the Premier League.

Serie A star forward has been keen to push through a switch to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Talks were held between the representatives of Brazilian forward and West Ham United.

And according to Italian outlet CalcioMercato, Anderson is now close to joining West Ham.

The Brazilian has been valued at £33m (€41m) by the Rome-based team.

Chelsea have identified Anderson as a replacement for his compatriot Willian who is likely to leave the club this summer but now the Blues seem to have looks elsewhere to strengthen their offensive end.
