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.

Went to the Bournemouth match where he looked utter dogshit.

Watched the Everton match from my sofa where he looked decent. Like others have said, he does something that we've been crying out for - he wants the ball and he runs with it. A fantastic outlet to relieve pressure from our defence.

Very much looking forward to him and Lanzini linking up. Obiang looked fantastic on Sunday too. And fingers crossed Wilshere finds some form and fitness.

We've finally got the makings of an attractive attacking unit

On the positive side, though, he does have good teeth.

" ... really good spells .. ??

Behave!

A few quite good moments. In FIVE games.

If he starts justifying the fee, I will acknowledge that.

Until then ............................................... the emperor is not wearing any clothes

Bags,of skill and can spot a,pass and deliver it. He's played 5 games in a new side in a,new league and had some really good spells as well as some really quiet ones.

Give him a chance ffs.

Is it playing up again?

I'd have thought a much lower profile was in order after everyone took the piss

I'm more impressed by neat footwork than a pointless pass to someone in a less advanced position.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
The cross field ball he hit to Yarmolenko was a little bit more than neat footwork

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
I'll be more than happy to be proved wrong, but I think we will see no more than the occasional neat bit of footwork.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
He does go down a bit too easily sometimes but I'm loving his ability on the ball. Reminds me a bit of Devonshire but not as effective just yet. But I am confident that he will continue to improve and will be one of our top performers this season.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Still early days Ronald.

I believe he will get better as the season goes on

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
He looked a bit better against Everton, but is still flattering to deceive.

Mcavennie 1:02 Tue Sep 18
Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
He is deceptively quick, and is a very good player for us.
He is frustrating at times but if he wasn’t he wouldn’t be with us.
The issue is people expect him to be the compete player based on what we spent on him but based on what is the market value for players he wouldn’t be for that money, I’m happy to have him in our team

Crassus 11:02 Mon Sep 17
Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
He is what he is - magnificently blessed with natural talent, vision, pace and control
But blighted by mindset - flawed genius, exactly as described by Vickery
We will love him all the same and if he had the mental side and will, he would have been treble the price he was, and at Barca

"He’s a cross between Trevor Brooking and Alan Devonshire."

Behave.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
Skilful and should be much better once adjusted. Only five games in, so can’t expect miracles. Lanzini might struggle to get back in if Yarm and Anderson continue well.

He’s a cross between Trevor Brooking and Alan Devonshire.

Broadly agree with most of that. What he does do is give us a way out when we're under pressure, something we've been missing since that French cunt left. Player like him needs to work his cunt off every game, as well as pack in the falling over. Let's see if he does. Boy's got some skill though.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
For me he still has plenty to prove.
I did not understand the congratulations from some for yesterday.

He is very good on the ball. His passing is good. He works hard and gets back to defend.

However, I still watch him with anticipation when he has the ball and is going forward and he generally does nothing. Where are the assists? Where are the goals?

Noble and Obiang did a better job Helping the attack, an assist each and they did a good defensive job high up the field.

His performance will improve as his afro grows. It was a mistake to trim down his barnet from his Lazio days.

Re: Felipe Anderson - Signed
We need to give him more than five games. Could be a season-Long adjustment.

Mate he needs a ball to be a 70:30 for him to put a foot in. He does show glimpses of one of those player who can make time on the ball.
