West Ham Complete £42m Felipe Anderson Transfer
West Ham United have completed the £42m transfer of Felipe Anderson from Lazio to West Ham United. The Brazilian winger becomes the London club’s record signing. Anderson was a member of Brazil’s 2016 Olympic gold winning team.
Anderson, who has signed a four year contract, told West Ham’s official website, “West Ham is a club with a lot of tradition, lots of great players have played here, like Bobby Moore, Carlos Teves and Di Canio. I'm really happy to be here. It's a dream come true.
“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." Anderson spent five years in Rome scoring 34 goals in 177 appearances.
