The 28-year-old moved to the London Stadium from Lazio in the summer of 2018 for a fee that could eventually rise to £42 million (Reuters).

Anderson began life in the Premier League in brilliant form.

He racked up 10 goals and five assists during his debut campaign with the Hammers.

Anderson’s form fell off the face of a cliff 18 months ago, however. And he now looks like an absolute shadow of his former self.

The Brazilian attacker moved to Porto on loan in October last year but unfortunately for him, he has endured a torrid time in Portugal.

If the Hammers could get a decent fee for Felipe, David Moyes absolutely must sell him this summer.

The South American’s decline has been quite sad to see. He has so much talent but sometimes, things just don’t work out.

Moyes has limited funds to play with at the London Stadium this summer. So moving on the deadwood will be crucial for the Scot.
