Felipe Anderson didn’t know he was being watched by Brazil scouts

Felipe Anderson has been seriously impressive during his short time with West Ham United.

The Brazilian joined the Hammers in the summer in a deal – that appeared to go on for the majority of the transfer window – worth £34.2million from SS Lazio, per Transfermarkt.

It would appear a figure of that value for the attacker could be considered to be a bargain, as the 25-year-old has put in a number of solid performances.

And, it seems those displays have impressed his country, with scouts having decided to watch him in action against Fulham at the London Stadium last Friday.

However, Anderson has revealed that he did not know they were there, although he did admit getting back into the national side was one of his main goals.

“I didn’t know [that representatives of the Brazilian National Team were in the stadium on Friday], as I always say, it’s one of my main goals to go back to the National Team but I was very focused. I want to get back there but to do so I know I need to give my all to the team and that’s what really matters,” he told the club’s official website.

The Verdict:

Anderson has been a standout for West Ham this season and could certainly be considered one of the signings of the summer transfer window.

The Brazilian, who has been capped just once for his country – which came back in 2015, has eight goals and three assists in his 27 Premier League appearances so far, helping to get them up the table.

Despite all the talent in the National Team, if Anderson continues to perform at the standard he is currently doing so, it should not be too long before he is playing for Selecao.
