Claret and Hugh claimed yesterday that West Ham ace Felipe Anderson could be sold this summer, and some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The 26-year-old joined West Ham from Lazio in the summer of 2018 for around £42 million (The Guardian).
The Brazilian made a decent start to life in England, racking up 10 goals and five assists in 40 appearances in his debut campaign for the Hammers (Transfermarkt).
Anderson’s form has dipped dramatically this season, however.
The 26-year-old has chalked up just one goal and five assists in 24 games in all competitions for West Ham since August (Transfermarkt).
The South American has struggled with his form and fitness this season. His confidence seems to be at an all time low, and he has been a shadow of his former self this term.
The Brazilian, who earns around £80,000 per week according to Sky Sports, has the ability to be a real game-changer on his day.
But he just hasn’t produced that kind of form at all really this season.
Having said that, it is surely too early to give up on him. Or is it?
Some West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to the claims that Anderson could be moved on in the summer…
Yeah let’s trim the playing staff down to 16. We rarely get injuries and our fitness levels mean we don’t need to rotate the squad

Would be a terrible decision

Ermm no. West Ham are too well known for having a small squad and injuries are our thing. Anderson is class on his day. Had a bad season unfortunately but he will get back to his best. And when he does, he will make so many holes in defences with his pace and trickery. Simple no

Give him another season

As long as we get a huge amount of money. He’s one of the only players that has pace in our team ffs.

Keep Anderson there’s a top class player in there if we can capture the form.. just not as an automatic starter as he was under MP

Would be stupid to keep Lanzini and Antonio and offload Anderson.
