West Ham United forward Felipe Anderson has admitted he misses Rome, but his head remains at the London Stadium.

Anderson spent five years with Lazio after arriving in a £6.75m deal from Santos in 2013, before joining the Hammers in 2018.

He was a huge hit with the Italian club, making 177 appearances for them in all competitions, scoring 34 goals and registering 39 assists.

He was also an Italian Super Cup winner with them in 2018, as well as featuring for them in both the Europa League and the Champions League.

The player and the club maintain a good relationship as a result, which has led to several reports that Anderson could return to Lazio should he leave West Ham in the near future.

Indeed, reports in England have actively linked him with an emotional move back to his former club, but Anderson insists his head remains at West Ham.

“I am staying in Sardinia for another five days,” he told La Lazio Siamo Noi.

“I miss Rome, before coming here I was a few days in the capital with my friends since I had been missing for two years.

“Lazio is always in my heart; I cheer for my teammates. They were five wonderful years.

“Future? I don’t know, my head is at West Ham but let’s see what happens.

“A message to the Lazio fans? Thank you for your support. I send you a hug.”
