Opinion: Moyes must bring attacker back into West Ham team, sale talk ridiculous

West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson wants to leave the club this summer, according to The Sun, but the Irons would be mad to sell their club-record signing at a sizeable loss. 

Since David Moyes rejoined the club, opportunities for the Brazilian attacker have been fleeting and it is only natural that the former Lazio star will be feeling frustrated. 

Homegrown duo Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen have impressed in recent times for West Ham and look like nailed-on starters for the club when Premier League action returns next month. 

However, cutting losses on Anderson would be a mistake. 

In his first season at West Ham, the Brazilian was one of the club’s best and most-exciting players, with a lack of consistency being his Achilles Heel. 

That said, given his substantial ability and versatility, the Hammers need to give Anderson another chance to excel in the Premier League. 

He has proven in fleeting glimpses that he can be a star in England, while his scoring record and performances in Italy were very impressive. 

Accepting a fee close to half of what West Ham paid for Anderson, which is being touted in The Sun, would be ridiculous – the South American can still be a key man for the club.
