West Ham United complete Club record Felipe Anderson transfer

West Ham United are delighted to confirm the Club record signing of Lazio attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson.



Anderson joins Manuel Pellegrini’s side on a four-year contract, having completed five hugely-successful seasons in Italy with Lazio.

The Brazilian, who has been capped at senior level by his country, scored eight goals and assisted ten more in his 32 appearances for the Rome club last term.

Anderson’s undoubted creative ability was a key factor in the Club moving for the 25-year-old – the Hammers’ seventh signing of the summer so far after the arrivals of Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Fabian Balbuena.

The man, himself, cannot wait to test himself in the Premier League.

"I feel really happy and fulfilled to join West Ham United," Anderson told whufc.com. "West Ham is a club with a lot of tradition, lots of great players have played here, like Bobby Moore, Carlos Tevez and Di Canio.

"They were great players and idols here, and I’m aiming big, who knows, maybe I could hit their heights and be a legend here too. I'm really happy to be here. It's a dream come true.

"I want to thank the owner, David Sullivan, because he made a big effort to bring me here. I know how difficult it was, so I have to thank him a lot, and I hope I can repay his faith in me on the pitch with goals and winning games."

Director of Football Mario Husillos is delighted to have welcomed the winger to London Stadium and believes Anderson's signing shows the Club's intent for the coming campaign.

"We are very happy and pleased to welcome Felipe to West Ham United," Husillos said.

“We believe that we have signed one of the most exciting talents in European football. Felipe has shown a fantastic level of performance at Lazio in recent seasons and we believe that he will now bring that quality to the Premier League. He is also a player very suited to the style of Manuel Pellegrini.

“For West Ham United this is a very big statement, a club record, so we must thank the owners for their support and work in making this transfer possible.

“It is a negotiation that has taken some time but it is a very good sign that Felipe was determined to become a West Ham player, and we feel very confident that he will become a big success at London Stadium.”

Joint-Chairman David Sullivan said: “Felipe was a main target of the manager so we are delighted we’ve been able to bring him to the Club.

“We’re very pleased with the business we’ve done so far and I hope the supporters are just as excited as we are about the squad we are building here at West Ham.

“The deal sees us significantly break our transfer record and we feel it’s a real statement of intent.”

Born in Santa Maria, Brazil, Anderson made his way in football with Sao Paolo side Santos, making his senior debut in October 2010, when he was just 17.

The following year he helped Santos win the Copa Libertadores – South America’s equivalent of the Champions League – before heading to Europe to link up with Lazio in the summer of 2013.

He wasted little time in making his mark in Italy, scoring eleven goals in the 2014/15 campaign and playing a major role as Lazio reached the final of that season’s Coppa Italia.

In total he scored 34 goals in 177 Lazio appearances, lifting the 2017 Supercoppa Italiana along the way, and last term led the league in terms of dribbles, with an average of 5.4 per game.

He has also enjoyed success on the international stage, winning an Olympic Gold Medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, and making his senior Selecao debut in a friendly against Mexico in 2015.

Everyone at West Ham United would like to welcome Felipe and his family to the Club and wish him every success in his career with the Hammers.

Best game he's had for us yet ! Quality.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Was good last night and the goal against Newcastle was pleasing in the strength he showed against the defender. He wouldn't have done that at the beginning of the season.

Thought he was class last night. Glides along with the ball and great eye for a pass. Really finding his feet now.

Spot on

And he has started to do the things he is good at, like taking people on and use his pace. The second half he was bascially given a free role, and looked good doing it. Big month now with Arnie likely to be out so Felipe needs to keep giving us big performances

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Anderson needed to work that much harder on and off the ball. He's doing that now and is getting his just rewards.

Hopefully, he'll keep it up.

Reminds me of Devo in his pomp the more I see of him... been a excellent signing so far

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Some Players have to ge given time. Happened with Arnie, better part of half a season and similar happening with Anderson. Snodgrass is a quality player too, we just had Bilic playing him out of position and knocking his confidence. Now playing in the right set up he’s showing us what a solid player he really is.

Bottled in a 50/50 Jesus wept

Funny what happens when you have a bit of patience with a player.

Bloke is class

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
He's looked classy as fuck the past month or so.

Fair do's to him. He's actually starting to work that much harder now and is being more physical.

Great to see.

I wish this bloke would hurry up and break someone leg(s) or get sent off a few times so we can start appreciating him.

El Scorchio 12:22 Wed Dec 5
Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Little shaky at the start and absolutely bottled a 50/50 but really started turning it on after the first 20 minutes or so and seems to be producing the goods more consistently. Some great touches, passes and turns of pace.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Nearly scored 2 through the keepers legs sat 1 through Harts legs looks two footed here http://youtu.be/HVHausE2NXQ

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Finally starting to look a decent player.

Got to make it consistent now.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Very true El Scorchio,
During the Newcastle game, I spent more time slagging his errors than applauding his skill. I could not undestand MOD and then the papers made him man of the match, bizarre.

He is good at moments and of course gets in my team, but needs more consistency, something just not quite right. Then again, Chicharito fucked me off a bit as well, perhaps I am getting to demanding...

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Another left footed strike as well - think that's three he's got with his left now. I remember watching some of the youtube compilations of him and he looked ridiculously one footed, as if his left foot was for nothing more but standing on.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
ES,
Think we are too quick to criticise. How many players from abroad come here and are outstanding from day one?
Look at the shit Arnie got at the start of last season and he had played in the premiership for a few seasons

arsene york-hunt 9:58 Mon Dec 3
Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
He has scored two goals so far by putting the ball through the keeper's legs. Is this good luck or outrageous skill?
