Felipe Anderson’s spell in Rome has come to an end as he officially completed his move to West Ham United today.
The deal has broken West Ham’s transfer record, with a figure thought to be around €40 million heading to Lazio in return for the Brazilian.
We, at TheLaziali.com, would like to wish Felipe Anderson all the best for his future career; and hope he gets the chances at West Ham that were no longer open to him in Rome.

In a statement on Lazio’s website, the club said: “The Company thanks the player for his efforts and wishes him, in addition, the best personal and professional fortunes.”
Speaking to West Ham’s official website, Felipe Anderson said the following:
“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.”
Good luck and grazie Felipe!
