Felipe Anderson has been linked to West Ham United numerous times over the past few months, but it seems unlikely that a deal will be done.
On June 19, the Daily Mail reported that the East London outfit were trying to agree a £35m deal to sign the Lazio winger.

At that point, the media claimed that talks were ongoing, but according to a club insider, an agreement will not be reached.
Twitter account @WestHam_Central tweeted on Wednesday that reliable source known as ExWHUemployee has provided an update.

The speculation has been circling for some time, but now it seems that Anderson will not be one of Manuel Pellegrini’s new signings.
West Ham fans have been posting their reactions on Twitter, with some insisting that it is time for the club to move on to other targets.
Good, they want too much

I did tell lots of people not to get over excited about this one when people were running around weeks ago as if it was a done deal. I got slated for being negative remember. I accept all those apologies.
