West Ham flop Felipe Anderson has left the club to join Lazio in a deal worth around £4million.

Anderson joined the Hammers from Lazio in 2018 for a then club-record £36m but the Brazilian has struggled to perform.

He spent last season on loan at Porto, playing 10 games, and he has now left on a permanent basis.

West Ham will take a loss of more than £30m for the attacking midfielder but they do have a 50 per cent sell-on clause in the deal that sees him return to Italy.

Anderson is one of a number of players the Hammers want to move on this summer in order to raise funds and free up their wage bill in order to invest in the squad.

“Everyone at West Ham United would like to thank Felipe Anderson for his contribution made during his time as a Hammer and wish him the very best for his future,” said West Ham in a statement on Friday.
