Anderson, 31, joined the Hammers from Lazio back in 2018 for a club-record fee of £45million.

In 2021, Anderson returned to Lazio on a permanent transfer and refound his form.

Now, Anderson will leave the Rome-based club yet again after revealing he has not reached an agreement on a new contract.

He confirmed his exit on social media with an emotional statement.

It read: “Out of respect for Lazio and its fans who always supported me, I confirm that I have not reached an agreement to renew my contract with the club and I will therefore follow a new path next season.

“I always proved my professionalism and my commitment to Lazio.
