West Ham have applied for a work permit for Lazio winger Felipe Anderson, after agreeing a deal to sign the Brazilian winger.

According to Mirror journalist Lee Clayton, West Ham have applied for a work permit and are set to pay £37m for the forward.

West Ham have been heavily linked with the winger throughout the transfer window and finally look set to seal the deal.

Anderson scored three goals in the Serie A for Lazio last season, as he fell out of favour for the Italian side.

The club confirmed the signing of Andriy Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
