West Ham have upped their bid for Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson.
Gazzetta dello Sport says Lazio president Claudio Lotito has been seeking €50m, but would be prepared to accept €45m.
The Hammers’ opening bid was €30m plus another €8m in bonuses, but negotiations are continuing rapidly.
It’s believed he is ready to sign a five-year deal with the Londoners worth €3.6m per season.
Felipe Anderson‘s contract is due to expire in June 2020 and he is not a regular in the starting XI under Coach Simone Inzaghi.
