Official: Felipe Anderson Has Returned to Lazio & Signed a Four-Year Contract

Lazio have officially signed Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson on a four-year contract.

As seen in an official announcement released by the Biancocelesti yesterday, the 28-year-old Brazilian winger has signed a four-year contract with the Roman club, returning three years after his initial departure.

Felipe Anderson was sold to Premier League side West Ham in the summer of 2018 but failed to fully settle in England and struggled to perform on loan last season. The player was held in high regard by Biancocelesti fans, and finally got his return to Rome earlier this summer.
