West Ham United are reportedly on the verge of completing a deal to sign Lazio attacker Felipe Anderson.
The Hammers are one of three Premier League clubs understood to be interested in the 25-year-old, alongside Leicester City and Southampton.
However, Italian outlet Tuttomercato claims that West Ham have now won the race for his signature and could announce his arrival before the end of the week.
The report says that West Ham will pay an initial fee of €30m (£26.5m) for the one-time Brazil international, with a further €8m (£7.1m) in bonuses.
Anderson made 32 appearances for Lazio across all competitions last season, scoring eight goals and creating 10 more.
