Felipe Anderson

Currently away from the club and suffering on a rotten loan in Portugal with FC Porto, Felipe Anderson has quickly become West Ham’s forgotten man. The club’s former record signing burst onto the scene in the Premier League and had a cracking debut campaign.

Anderson’s second campaign is where things started to go wrong for him. The Brazilian only managed one goal, and four assists all season, which was disappointing. Anderson also fell down the pecking order as he did not fit into David Moyes plans.

The winger was dropped from the Premier League side and moved into the League Cup team, where he started to show glimpses of his top form. Before he was given a chance to show it back in the Premier League, he was loaned out to FC Porto, in hindsight a terrible move.

The aim was for Anderson to play regularly and build up his confidence for either a return to West Ham or to restore some value on his name ahead of a potential sale this summer. As it turns out, Porto’s manager only likes to use loan players as a last resort, and Anderson has paid the price.

The winger has only made four appearances in Portugal, and this has seen his value plummet. It would make sense for the club to cash in just to move on from the player. If a bid came in of £15-£20 million, then, after swallowing some pride, it would be a decent recuperation for the player.

Though if no such bid arrives for Anderson, the club should keep hold of him. If West Ham qualifies for some European competition this season, he could be a useful asset in the squad.

If West Ham do actually qualify for Europe though it could be wise to keep the squad together and not sell off many players. David Moyes will need a deep squad capable of challenging in multiple competitions.
