A Ä38million bid - and other transfer stories

West Ham have seen a Ä38million offer for Felipe Anderson rejected, according to reports emanating from Italy.

The 25-year-old Brazilian forward, who can also operate as a winger has been closely linked with a move to east London for several weeks and if you should believe the Italian media, has been the subject of a vast offer from West Ham.

However it was still not quite enough to tempt Lazio into an agreement, add reports, with the Serie A side said to have rejected United's offer immediately. Leicester are also reported to be very interested.

* Jack Wilshire's name continues to be linked with West Ham, despite the club having made no genuine attempt to bring him to the Olympic Stadium inrecent weeks.

The frequently-injured Arsenal midfielder, who new Gunners boss Unai Emery is said to want to keep, is top of Manuel Pellegrini's hit-list say the Daily Star (who aren't particularly well-known for exclusive transfer news).

* Inter are preparing to offer loan midfielder Joao Mario to Tottenham in exchange for Mousa Dembele, say Tuttosport.

The Portuguese international has been linked with a permanent move to West Ham but the Serie A side are seeking in excess of Ä25million for his services. West Ham, who remain interested in bringing in the Euro 16 winner on a full-time basis are thought to value Mario, 25, around the £15million mark.

"Iím wanted," Mario said at the weekend. "The Premier League is ideal: spectacular atmosphere, physical games yet technical at the same time. Itís the first option, then La Liga. West Ham could be an idea, but for now itís too early to say anything."

* West Ham's attempts to lure Javier Pastore to the Premier League have hit a major snag with the news that Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is keen to reunite himself with the Argentine international.

PSG's Pastore, who is set to leave the French club this summer previously worked alongside Ancelotti, who is, say reports, keen to bring 'El Flaco' to Italy. Although West Ham are said to have made an offer for the 28-year-old, no talks have yet taken place (Super News).

* Ryan Fredericks is set to be confirmed as Manuel Pellegrini's first signing within the next 24 hours. Representatives of the full back are said to be meeting West Ham this afternoon to determine the 25-year-old's financial package.
