West Ham abandon Anderson

West Ham have abandoned talks with Lazio for Felipe Anderson, securing deals for Andriy Yarmolenko and Milan target Jack Wilshere.

The Hammers had been in negotiations with Lazio for weeks, but couldn’t meet the €50m asking price.

Instead, multiple sources state the Premier League side turned to Yarmolenko and agreed a fee of €20m with Borussia Dortmund.

The 28-year-old Ukraine international is having a medical today at their pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

West Ham United have also agreed terms with Wilshere, a free agent whose contract with Arsenal has expired.

He had been close to Milan, Juventus and Fenerbahce, but the 26-year-old England midfielder opted to remain in London.
