Lazio have reportedly reached an agreement with West Ham United over the transfer of Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson.
The winger returns to the Stadio Olimpico ahead of 2021-22 to work with Maurizio Sarri at the Aquile.
Sky Sport Italia reports the Biancocelesti have reached an agreement with the Hammers over a €3m transfer, a figure that Lazio will not pay because it’s the equivalent of the remaining payment never received after the move to London in July 2018.
West Ham will additionally be entitled 50 per cent of the future re-sale of the player.
Gianluca Di Mazio reports the deal is closed between the two parties and Felipe Anderson will again play for Lazio next season.
The 28-year-old spent last season on loan with FC Porto but returns to the club where he got his real breakthrough in European football.
During his last stint in Rome, the Brazilian scored 34 goals and contributed 39 assists in 177 competitive games.
Felipe Anderson first arrived from Santos in July 2013 for a reported €7.5m and moved to the Irons on a €38m move five years later.
