Felipe Anderson could be leaving West Ham for Lazio very soon according to ExWHUemployee.

The Brazilian winger has been heavily linked with a return to Lazio in recent weeks (Corriere dello Sport (Print edition, July 3rd, page 27) and Noi Biancocelesti).

Anderson hit the ground running when he arrived at the London Stadium in the summer of 2018.

Unfortunately for him, however, his form began to nose-dive halfway through the 2019/20 campaign.

Anderson struggled last season on loan with Porto as well.

He just seems to be an absolute shadow of his former self. At 28 now, the Brazilian has reached a crossroads in his career.

Felipe Anderson leaving West Ham for Lazio?

The Brazilian’s future at the London Stadium with David Moyes at the helm is certainly bleak to say the very least.

 

ExWHUemployee told the West Ham Way podcast last night that there has been some movement in the last 24 hours regarding Anderson’s potential return to Lazio:

“I know that Lazio are interested in Anderson and there have been some reports that he is on the brink of signing for them. Now, I’m not sure it’s as close as that. I do know that Lazio are interested in him and that talks are progressing between the two clubs. In the last 24 hours there has been some movement to try and get him to go to Lazio. So we’ll see what happens there.”

It is a shame how things have worked out for Felipe at West Ham.

Losing him on a free transfer would be an absolutely awful piece of business from the club’s owners once again.

Let’s hope that we manage to get at least a small fee. And at the very worst, his £85k-a-week wages will finally be off our books.

Hopefully the West Ham owners have learned a lot from signings like Anderson and Sebastien Haller. And with Moyes now at the helm, hopefully those mistakes won’t be repeated.
