ลิ้ ง sbo West Ham United have signed attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson from Lazio on a four-year contract for a club-record fee, the Premier League side said on Sunday. The 25-year-old, capped once by Brazil, became manager Manuel Pellegrini's seventh close-season signing with Sky Sports reporting West Ham will pay an initial 35 million pounds ($46.31 million) with the deal potentially rising to 42 million pounds.

"West Ham is a club with a lot of tradition, lots of great players have played here, like Bobby Moore, Carlos Tevez ลิ้ ง sbo and (Paolo) Di Canio," Anderson told the club website. "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." Anderson’s "undoubted creative ability" was a key factor in West Ham's decision to sign him, the club said.

"We believe that we ลิ้ ง sbo have signed one of the most exciting talents in European football," director of football Mario Husillos said in a statement. "Felipe has shown a fantastic level of performance at Lazio in recent seasons and we believe that he will now bring that quality to the Premier League. He is also a player very suited to the style of Manuel Pellegrini." West Ham, who finished 13th last season, will begin their new Premier League campaign against Liverpool on Aug. 12.
