Felipe Anderson

West Ham have signed midfielder Felipe Anderson from Lazio for a club record fee on a four-year contract.

The 25-year-old, who has been capped once by Brazil, scored 34 goals in 177 appearances for the Italian club.

The deal eclipses the £22m West Ham paid Toulouse for France Under-21 defender Issa Diop last month.

Anderson was part of Brazil’s Olympic gold medal-winning squad in 2016.
