Felipe Anderson is headed back to Rome.
The 28-year-old midfielder has rejoined Lazio from West Ham United for an undisclosed fee. Anderson, capped three times by Brazil, has signed a three-year deal with the club with whom he previously had spent five seasons.
Anderson signed for Hammers in 2018 in a £36 million move, a then-record transfer for the London club. After being a regular starter for the team in his first season in England under Manuel Pellegrini, Anderson fell out of favour upon the reappointment of David Moyes as manager. Last October, Anderson was sent to Porto on a season-long loan where he only made 10 appearances across all competitions.
He finishes his West Ham career with 10 goals in 63 league appearances.
Anderson becomes Lazio's second signing of the offseason under new manager Maurizio Sarri, having previously signed Serbia under-21 defender
