West Ham make emphatic Felipe Anderson decision - report

According to a report from UOL, West Ham United will look to sell Felipe Anderson for around €15 million (£12.9 million) this summer.

The 28-year-old joined the Hammers from Lazio in the summer of 2018 for a fee that could eventually rise to £41.5 million (BBC).

Anderson made a great start to life in England with 10 goals and five assists for West Ham during his debut campaign.

The Brazilian then began to struggle midway through the 2019/20 campaign.

And he has never rediscovered his form.

Anderson was shipped out on loan to Porto in October. The former Lazio man has endured a torrid spell with the Portuguese outfit, however.

West Ham to sell Felipe Anderson

UOL claims that the 28-year-old knows himself that he will leave the London Stadium this summer.

If West Ham get that kind of fee for Felipe, it would be an absolute miracle! He has been so poor over the past 18 months.

And with only one year remaining on Anderson’s current deal, any prospective buyers may well be reluctant to pay more than £7-8 million for him.

It’s a shame that Anderson never lived up to his reputation at West Ham.

We must continue to learn from our past mistakes, however.

David Moyes has already been smarter and more thrifty in the transfer market than Manuel Pellegrini ever was. That is great.

And the deals for Anderson and Sebastien Haller will be a constant reminder for the West Ham fans of our past failures in the transfer market.
