Hammers boss David Moyes isn’t a fan of the 28-year-old winger according to club insider ExWHUemployee.

Anderson was a big hit at the London Stadium during his debut campaign in England.

The Brazilian has really struggled over the past 18 months, however.

He stooped to new lows during a loan spell with Porto last season. Sure, he didn’t get a consistent run of games but the point remains.

Anderson just isn’t the same player anymore. He is quite simply a shadow of his former self.

 

West Ham really want to sell Felipe Anderson

Corriere dello Sport claims that the Hammers are very keen to move the 28-year-old winger on this summer.

Lazio are thought to be keen on bringing him back to the Italian capital. And if the Serie A side make a decent offer for Anderson, Moyes will undoubtedly decide to move him on.

Whether Lazio will be prepared to offer anything substantial is another matter, however.

Anderson has been so poor recently that surely no clubs will be prepared to take a risk by making a significant financial outlay on the 28-year-old winger.
