• West Ham will set a special clause if Felipe Anderson decides to part ways with the club
  • Anderson could reunite with former boss Maurizio Sarri at Stadio Olimpico
  • Lazio has Anderson on its radar because of Sarri

West Ham United knows that it has to release some players this summer transfer window and is ready to take a financial hit in the process.

One player who the Hammers are allegedly willing to let go is attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Irons are ready to allow Anderson to walk out for free.

However, they want a certain clause included if this happens. West Ham United wants to receive 50% of his future sell-on fee to whichever team takes him in.

A reason behind this is because West Ham wants to make ends meet as they try to cover the hefty wages on their list.

Though it does not apply to all, players like Anderson never really lived up to expectations after he was taken in for a fee of £40 million ($55 million) in 2018.

The Brazilian failed to prove his worth, and letting him walk for free would only add to their losses.

Compared to the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Vladimir Coufal, Craig Dawson and Jesse Lingard, West Ham United spend little but got big value from those investments.

Anderson’s next stop could be his former club--S.S. Lazio. He produced 73 goals in 177 games for the Serie A side but never got to sustain that performance when he got to the London Stadium.

The Brazilian made a good impression during his first year with the Irons, but the story was quite different in 2019-20 as he ended up getting loaned to Porto where he saw action for only 10 games.

According to Sky Sports Italia, Lazio seems bent on getting the 28-year-old to their side.

He would be reunited with Maurizio Sarri, someone who has trying to sign Anderson when he was still calling the shot for Napoli.

Le Aguile has yet to reach an agreement with West Ham although both are reportedly nearing the common ground.

Lazio is hoping that the inclusion of a sell-on clause will convince the Hammers to agree and close the deal.

With West Ham United having a surplus of players, a move to Stadio Olimpico appears to be imminent.

But for that to be sealed, Lazio would have to agree to a permanent deal reportedly worth £8.6 million ($11.89 million).
