According to a report from Football Insider, West Ham could sell Felipe Anderson for just £21 million this summer.

The 26-year-old joined the Hammers from Lazio for £42 million in the summer of 2018 (The Guardian).
The Brazilian winger really impressed for West Ham during his debut campaign in England. But his performance levels have dipped dramatically this season.
Anderson has chalked up just one goal and five assists in 24 games in all competitions for West Ham since August (Transfermarkt).
And because of the ongoing global health crisis, Football Insider claims that the Hammers could recoup just half of what they paid for the 26-year-old 21 months ago, if they do indeed decide to sell him.
On his day, Anderson is a real game-changer. But he hasn’t shown that on anywhere near enough of a consistent basis.
Considering the fact that the Brazilian earns £85,000 per week at West Ham (Spotrac), he quite simply hasn’t delivered enough.
He has certainly shown that he has what it takes to succeed in the Premier League, however. Albeit in glimpses.
And there would be no point in the Hammers selling Anderson right now. Especially if they can only recoup £21 million for his services.
West Ham just need to ride out the storm. And hope that the South American comes good sooner rather than later.
