Despite an impressive start in London Stadium, however, the Brazilian really hasn’t lived up to expectations.

On his day, the 27-year-old can be a real game-changer. But he just hasn’t showed that enough recently, especially since David Moyes took charge of the Hammers in December 2019.

And some West Ham fans took to Twitter to discuss what on earth has happened to Anderson…

And the tweets kept on coming…


There have even been reports suggesting that the Hammers are already prepared to sell Anderson.

West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh claimed earlier this year that the Brazilian winger could be moved on this summer.

And if the east London club receive a decent fee for Anderson, it might just be in their best interest to sell him.


The 27-year-old has racked up just one goal and four assists in 28 games for West Ham this season (Who Scored).

He has looked lethargic and disinterested of late.

Anderson has been out injured recently, but he could be set to return for Friday night’s huge clash with Watford at the London Stadium.

And who knows? Perhaps the Brazilian still has a very important role to play for West Ham this season. He absolutely must put in more effort on the pitch, however, if that is to be the case.
