Official: Felipe Anderson announced as Hammer

West Ham have finally confirmed 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 25-year-old becomes 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.

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.”

  1. So in various news papers and on the BBC football page I’m reading so many negative comments from non West Ham Fans.
    Mostly they’re mistaking him for an ex Man U player but overwhelmingly they’re all giving our great club sh1t.
    They hate us “owning” a tax payer paid for stadium, wish they would do their homework on this, it’s getting tiresome.
    They are saying too many signings in too short a space of time, “won’t gel” is common.
    I’m loving it, sick and tired of being everyone’s second team. I don’t want to be liked, and love the fact that so many opposition fans are worried enough to bother trying to put a downer on the most positive thing to happen to a club I love, a club in my blood, three generations.
    I gave **** to the owners who I know are fans but now they’re proving it. A lot of respect to them.
    Be patient, two years from know I think we’ll be happy hammers! ⚒️⚒️⚒️

  2. This has got to be the most exciting transfer window ever at West Ham, and with the arrival of Pellegrini the most exciting close season. You have to hand it to the board this time – they have put the money where their mouth is. If Pellegrini can gel these players into a cohesive team, I think we are in for a very exciting season, and I for one can’t wait for it to start.

  3. As much as the board get on my pip I must give credit we’re it’s due.. Well done sully and co you have done the job you said you were going to do. Now get a forward to cover sick note..🙅🙅🙅🙅⚽💪

  4. I’m not sure what this all adds up to but the board have reacted. Nothing was generated from the departures of Collins, Evra, Hart, and Mario and a paltry sum for Burke. They have also effectively lost the clubs most valuable asset for a season, Lanzini. Added to this Carroll and Reid will have diminished value (if much at all) when they eventually return.
    So seven out or injured, and seven signed
    None of us can complain about.net spend.
    Allowing for youngsters coming in to the frame we probably don’t have numbers to sell beyond Byram, Snodgrass and Huigill so let’s get behind them and enjoy a great season.

  5. So excited. For me, the signings of the Summer are Pelle and Husillos, coupled with the Board’s decision to listen and act, both in terms of backing all these signings, but also having the humility to take a back seat and relinquish control. I’m sure Sully’s ego has taken a bit of a beating, but he should recognise that it is far stronger to recognise and act upon a weakness as he has done.

  6. This is wonderful, I really rate the signings of Anderson, Diop and Balbuena. I hope Yarmolenka will prove me wrong after a misfiring season in Germany. I believe Fabianski is no improvement on Adrian but it is great to have two top keepers. I have never rated Wilshere in terms of attitude or work rate (loads of ability) and to be honest I really hope he improves in these areas. I think there are better right backs in the league than Fredericks – he can only play in a back 5. I still think we need a CM and a stand out forward (if I could dream either correa, martial or iran player). If we are playing 3 at the back then go for Yilna from Barcelona. Wow I am dreaming lol lol

    • The season will tell Johnham but I expect to see a fired up Wilshere this season, from all the reports I have heard training was quite slack under Wenger with players not giving a 100% they all respected Wenger but it seems not enough to produce the required intensity in training, hopefully Pelle will not let our players produce anything less than 100%, for sure if we have enough competition for places the level of the players we had last season and retain should rise to meet that of those new to the club, although I am not expecting miracles overnight and because this way of training is foreign to last seasons crop I do expect to see a considerable improvement across the season hopefully ending up in the European places, a good start will be a bonus but we have a very tough early season run of games, would be nice if we position ourselves mid table in advance of the easier games mid season when hopefully we can gain a few points, a good start will be a bonus COYI !!!

  7. Good to see you are still on your toes Johnham 😉 This window, as you all day, is highly impressive. One of my favourite factors is how early we have concluded our business, especially in these WC days! There is always disruption with so many changes (managers staff, 7 players etc), so getting it all set early on and allowing the boys some valuable game time under their belt (Jesus, Carroll….) is invaluable. Let’s get behind the lads and show our true West Ham spirit, at home and away, and not start complaining if it has an uphill start – this is not a 2 month project gentebeings.
