Felipe Anderson could earn West Ham United a huge amount of money this month, if Lazio end up selling him.
Felipe Anderson was transferred by West Ham to Lazio in the summer of 2021 for a reported £3 million, with a 50% sell-on provision included in the agreement
During his last season at the London Stadium, Brazilian player David Moyes entirely lost trust in the manager of the Hammers.
Many were startled by the tiny sum we got for him, but at least the owners were smart enough to add a sell-on option in the agreement.
It appears that the proprietors’ acumen for business may pay out in the millions. According to the Italian media site Calcio Mercato, Lazio is now attempting to sign Anderson to a new contract.However, if they are unable to do that, it is claimed by the Italian media outlet that Lazio will try to sell him in the January transfer window. And they’re not prepared to let him go on the cheap it seems…
Felipe Anderson could earn West Ham a fortune
Calcio Mercato think that Lazio will only trade the winger for a minimum of €20 million this summer (£17.2 million).
The Hammers will get a whooping £8.6 million if they are successful in selling him for that amount. That would be really wonderful, wouldn’t it, and it would definitely make up for the pitiful amount we let him go for.The problem is, though, that I just cannot see any team spending £17 million for Anderson—after all, his contract expires in the summer.
I predict that the 30-year-old will either sign a new deal with Lazio or depart the Italian team in the summer on a free transfer.It would be wonderful to bring in a small £4 million bonus, even if he was sold for £8 million. To be honest
Felipe Anderson, as previously said, will either sign a new contract or leave Lazio on a free transfer, and West Ham will probably end up with nothing!
