According to a report by The Daily Mail, Felipe Anderson is one of Liverpool’s targets this summer. The Reds are weighing up several attacking midfield targets including Anderson.
West Ham signed the Brazilian winger from Lazio last summer for a club-record fee. And since then, he has adjusted well to life in England and produced some exciting performances.
Operating on the left wing, Anderson has been a regular under Manuel Pellegrini. And his tally of 10 goals and five assists earned him a recall to the Brazilian national squad earlier this season.
But inevitably, Anderson is starting to attract attention. Liverpool want the 26-year-old to bolster their squad after narrowly missing out on the Premier League title.
However, West Ham will dig their heels in. The Hammers do not want to sell Anderson, especially after taking a big-money gamble on him last summer.
West Ham fans flocked to Twitter to discuss these transfer rumours. The majority of those voicing their opinion agree with West Ham’s stance: Anderson is not for sale.
Here are some of the best tweets from West Ham supporters discussing the latest Anderson and Liverpool rumours.
Must not let him go

He is no way good enough for Liverpool or any side better than us, he just doesn’t work hard enough.
