West Ham drop Felipe Anderson

West Ham United are frustrated at Lazio’s demands for Felipe Anderson and ready to turn towards Andriy Yarmolenko of Borussia Dortmund.

As we reported last week, the Premier League club risk missing out on both their Serie A targets this summer.

They’ve already lost the race for Genoa defender Armando Izzo, who signed for Torino, while they are increasingly irritated with Lazio for wanting €50m for Felipe Anderson.

Official: Torino sign Izzo

Torino have officially signed Genoa centre-back Armando Izzo for €8m plus bonuses. “I chose Toro because football is joy and pure passion.”

The 25-year-old had also been linked with West Ham United, but opted for the Granata at a cost of €8m plus another €2m in performance-related bonuses.

“First of all, I want to thank President Urbano Cairo and all the people who worked to bring me to Toro,” said Izzo.

Torino told Verissimo price

Santos are ready to sell defender Lucas Verissimo to Torino for €10m, but only at certain conditions, according to Brazilian media.

The centre-back turned 23 yesterday and has also been linked with Lazio, Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique Marseille.

According to Gazeta Esportiva and Lancenet, Santos have said they are prepared to accept the €10m proposal from Torino.

However, Santos own only 80 per cent of the player’s rights, so they want the €10m to go to them and not be split with Verissimo’s agent.

Izzo to have Torino medical

Torino have agreed terms for Genoa defender Armando Izzo for €8m plus bonuses, despite West Ham United interest.

The centre-back is expected to have his medical with Genoa tomorrow, according to Sky Sport Italia.

A deal was done for €8m plus another €2m in performance-related bonuses.

He is 26 years old and was also linked with Sassuolo and Fiorentina this summer, but will sign a contract to June 2023.

Izzo has been at Genoa since the summer of 2014.

Sassuolo go for Bonifazi

Having missed out on Armando Izzo, Sassuolo reportedly turn to Kevin Bonifazi of Torino.

The Granata are set to sign Izzo in a €10m deal from Genoa, having beaten the Neroverdi to the deal.

His arrival could have a knock-on effect though, with 22-year-old Bonifazi’s playing time reduced even further.

The centre-back made only seven appearances in all competitions last season, and Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports he could move to Emilia when Izzo arrives.

Izzo set for Torino

Genoa defender Armando Izzo is set to join Torino, who have beaten off competition from Sassuolo.

The 26-year-old has received a call-up to the Italy squad - though without playing - and was previously a key part of the Grifone backline.

However, in April 2016 he was given an 18-month ban for failing to report match fixing - something he’s always denied.

That was later reduced to six months, but Izzo struggled to regain his place in Genoa’s side.

West Ham target Izzo

West Ham United have set their sights on Genoa defender Armando Izzo, claim Sky Sports UK, along with Lazio and Torino.

The 26-year-old centre-back can also play at right-back and came up through the youth academy of hometown club Napoli.

He had spells at Triestina and Avellino before moving to Genoa in 2014.

This season, Izzo only made 16 Serie A appearances, partly due to a knee injury.

Grifone needs to sharpen its claws

The last-gasp victory over Lazio was thrilling, but unless Genoa start delivering consistently in attack, Richard Hall warns it might remain a one-off.

Genoa’s last-gasp win against Lazio must simply be appreciated in the moment. The fact that Diego Laxalt had a sublime goal ruled out with help from VAR only made his bullet header in the dying embers even more special.

The victory also saw ex-Lazio forward Goran Pandev roll back the years and score against his old employers, but don’t be fooled. All the stars aligned for the Rossoblu on Monday night, but there were still enough examples on how good they could be, if they can find individuals or a collective to share the goals.
