As per the reports, the Hammers have finally agreed on a deal to sign the Brazilian midfielder.
The Premier League outfit were locked in talks with the Italian club for a while now and an agreement has been reached.
West Ham will pay 40 million Euros for the player. Furthermore, there will be a 20% future sell on clause as well.
Anderson should be a very good signing for Manuel Pellegrini’s side. The Brazilian is quite highly rated within the game and if he can regain his confidence, he could make a big difference next season.
With Lanzini ruled out for a considerable period of time, the Hammers will need another creative star to step up and Anderson could be that player.
Italian journalist Nicolo Chira believes Anderson will sign a 5 year deal with the Hammers and he will earn 3.5 million Euros per season.
