ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham have no interest in taking Felipe Anderson back early from his loan spell with Porto.

The 27-year-old has really struggled since moving to Porto on a season long loan last month.

Anderson did register an assist in a cup game last weekend, but aside from that, he has had no impact whatsoever for the Portuguese giants.

The Brazilian’s career seems to be in a tailspin. He initially impressed after joining West Ham from Lazio for around £36 million in the summer of 2018 (BBC).

The winger was really poor last season, however. And he began this term in the same fashion. Anderson was swiftly shipped out on loan to Porto, but he has experienced similar problems there.

 

ExWHUemployee provided an update on Anderson’s situation, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Wednesday, November 26th):

“Regarding Anderson – he played alright at the weekend, I think, but Porto have not been that impressed with him, and West Ham don’t want to take him back. So, he’s in a bit of a limbo at the moment.”

Anderson really needs to knuckle down, focus and work hard if he is to salvage his flagging career at the very highest level.

The South American undoubtedly has the talent. Whether he has the drive and mentality to succeed, however, remains to be seen.

A fully fit and firing Anderson could be a real asset for West Ham in the future. Let’s just hope that he is still hungry enough to prove everyone wrong.
