Porto want to sign West Ham winger Felipe Anderson on loan, according to a report from talkSPORT.

The 27-year-old, who earns £85,000 per week according to Spotrac, joined the Hammers from Lazio in the summer of 2018 for around £42 million (Reuters).

The Brazilian enjoyed a fairly impressive debut campaign in England. But he really struggled to live up to his reputation last term.

Anderson racked up just one goal and four assists in 25 Premier League games (Transfermarkt).

His work-rate and commitment has been questionable over the past 12 months. Some West Ham fans think Anderson will come good, but many believe he is just a luxury player who turns up when he wants.

With David Moyes’ new 5-4-1 or 3-4-3 system, it is hard to see where the 27-year-old fits in.

And talkSPORT claims that Porto want to bring the South American Hammers ace to the Primeira Liga on a season-long loan.

Depending on the kind of loan fee that the Portuguese side are willing to pay, and what percentage of Anderson’s wages they are willing to cover, it may just be in our best interest to move him on.

It must be noted, however, that it is somewhat of a worry that we don’t really have a left winger other than Anderson,.

But with our new system, Arthur Masuaku is a real threat out wide on the left. And who knows? Perhaps David Sullivan will surprise us all by bringing in someone like Said Benrahma in the Brazilian’s place.

We won’t hold our breath, however.
