Anderson has impressed at West Ham since joining the club from Lazio.

Felipe Anderson has told West Ham United’s official website that he did not know scouts from the Brazil national team were in attendance to watch him on Friday night against Fulham.

The 25-year-old has been in excellent form for the Hammers since joining the club for a transfer-record fee last summer from Lazio, certainly making up for the injury suffered by Manuel Lanzini.

The former Santos star has been involved in 11 Premier League goals in 27 fixtures – featuring in all of the east Londoners league matches. He has found the back of the net eight times, and created three more.

Anderson has earned one cap for Brazil in the past but his form in the Premier League has caught the attention of his national side once again, and Anderson commented on Brazil scouts watching him shine.

“I didn’t know [that Brazilrepresentatives were in the stadium on Friday]. 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.

“If I’m taken into account that gives me even more confidence to play my best football and if I keep on working I’m sure I’m going to be called up eventually.”

Anderson played 76 minutes of West Ham’s 3-1 win over London rivals Fulham on Friday night, thanks to goals from Javier Hernandez, Michail Antonio and Isaa Diop – cancelling out Ryan Babel’s strike.

The fleet-footed ace has plenty of competition in the Brazil squad, with the likes of Neymar, Richarlison, Malcom, Willian and Douglas Costa all rivalling Anderson for a place ahead of March’s fixtures against Panama and Czech Republic.
