West Ham United have set a price tag for Felipe Anderson next summer as they aim to lower their wage bill, reports suggest.
Anderson on his way out
The 27-year-old is currently on loan at Liga NOS champions FC Porto after a forgetful 2019/20 campaign with the Hammers, scoring just once and providing four assists from 20 starts (Whoscored).
Former Premier League striker Darren Bent told Football Insider last year that Anderson was “too inconsistent”. David Moyes appeared to acknowledge this by offloading the Brazilian.
According to Claret and Hugh, West Ham will look to sell Anderson for a fee in the region of £17m next summer and would be willing to take a significant loss on the £34m figure that they paid Lazio in 2018.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
West Ham are having a fantastic season so far and Moyes’ side cannot afford to have any loose baggage – as they aim to compete in Europe next season.
We believe that this will be the best move for both parties, considering he is not getting a huge amount of game time at Porto either.
With just four appearances and 120 minutes of game time in Liga NOS so far, the summer will be the best opportunity to cut ties with Anderson once and for all.
