West Ham are reportedly on the verge of tying up transfers for Issa Diop and Felipe Anderson.

Representatives from West Ham and Lazio met in Rome on Wednesday to agree a fee in the region of €30million, plus 20% of any fee from a future sale.

Sky in Italy report that Lazio sporting director Igli Tare will fly to London on Thursday to conclude a deal.

Anderson is keen to move to the Premier League  to work with new manager Manuel Pellegrini and personal terms are close to being agreed on a deal worth a reported £80,000 a week.

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio also claims the Brazil midfielder, who joined Lazio from Santos for £6.75m in 2013, is heading to east London.

The Hammers, who have already completed the signing of Ryan Fredericks on a free transfer, are also closing in on centre-back Issa Diop, 21.
