West Ham are vying to finalise a £35million deal for Lazio winger Felipe Anderson, according to the Daily Mail.

Negotiations are said to be ongoing apace to bring the Brazilian to east London, although Lazio are reportedly asking for extra sell-on clauses.

The Serie A club are said to have turned down two offers for the 25-year-old, who has international pedigree.

According to a recent report by the Daily Mirror, Anderson’s former employers, Santos, will get a 20% cut of any fee due to stipulations in his current contract.

Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace have been tipped as possible destinations for Jack Wilshere after he called time on his 17-year Arsenal career.

The 26-year-old is to weigh up offers from the trio over the coming weeks, the Times reports, as a string of Premier League clubs are expected to line up to land the free agent.

The Daily Telegraph says Wolves and West Ham are also likely to express interest, while offers are also expected to come from the continent.

Wilshere cited “purely footballing reasons” for his decision to leave the Gunners after revealing new head coach Unai Emery told him he would not play a key role in his plans for next season.

Palace are planning on trashing Spurs’ hopes of snatching Wilfried Zaha after offering him a golden deal to keep him at Selhurst Park, the Mirror reports.

The new terms could see the 25-year-old Ivorian’s pay packet rocket to more than £120,000-a-week, according to the paper.

With nine goals from 29 Premier League appearances last season, Palace bosses are said to be keen to reward his performance and keep him in South London.

With Spurs reported to be among a number of big clubs including Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool throwing him admiring glances, the new package would be a handsome reward for his loyalty to the Eagles.

Huddersfield are closing in on an £11million deal for Club Brugge winger Anthony Limbombe, the Sun reports.

The Terriers are seeking to avoid another close call in the fight to survive relegation next season and the Belgium international is said to be part of the battle plan.

Limbombe, 23, helped the club in win the Belgian Pro League and has represented his country at every level, making his senior debut against Saudi Arabia in March.

According to the newspaper Town made an initial offer of £7million, however it was turned down.

Tottenham and Arsenal are keeping close watch of Liverpool’s England junior Rhian Brewster, the Sun reports.

The 18-year-old striker is said to be seeking assurances he will get the chance to play first team football next season.

With a place in Jurgen Klopp’s squad as yet unconfirmed, the striker has held off signing what will be his first professional contract, it is claimed.

Brewster has already rejected advances from Bundesliga big guns Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, while Barcelona, Juventus and Monaco have all expressed interest in the teenager, the paper says.
