West Ham United will try to sell Felipe Anderson this summer, according to a report from Record (Print edition, May 19th, page 18).
The 28-year-old has really struggled since joining Porto on loan in October last year.
He really does seem to be an absolute shadow of the player he once was.
West Ham signed Anderson from Lazio in the summer of 2018 for around £42 million (Reuters).
The Brazilian winger enjoyed a fine debut campaign in England racking up 10 goals and five assists in the Premier League.
His form began to tail off midway through the 2019/20 campaign, however.
West Ham desperate to sell Felipe Anderson
Record (Print edition, May 19th, page 18) claims that Hammers boss David Moyes has no interest in keeping the 28-year-old at the London Stadium beyond the end of this season.
Anderson has only one year remaining on his current deal at West Ham.
The Hammers will not want to risk losing him for nothing in 12 months time.
Horrific form means buyers will be few and far between
Anderson’s form has been so bad that Moyes will struggle to get anything more than £5 million for him this summer.
That kind of fee would be better than nothing, however. And getting his £85k-a-week wages off the books would be a big bonus as well.

It remains to be seen if any club will be prepared to take a punt on Anderson in the summer, however.
