West Ham big-money man could still leave in loan exit – Sky Sports

West Ham United attacker Felipe Anderson is wanted by Porto on a season-long loan deal, with there remaining scope for the Brazilian winger to depart the London Stadium, according to Sky Sports

Transfer deadline day proved to be another disappointment for Hammers fans, who have watched in frustration as the club has failed to add the required quality to David Moyes’ squad in recent weeks and months. 

A host of West Ham fringe men have left the club over the window, with speculation over Anderson’s future given that he is no longer a first-team regular in East London – the odds at suggest he is set to leave.

The latest report confirms that the Portuguese window still has three weeks to run and as such the Hammers could opt to send the South American to the Estadio do Dragao before the end of the month. 

Moyes has preferred the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals as his attacking midfield options this season, with West Ham having plenty of strength in depth in the position. 

Anderson initially looked like an excellent signing after moving to the Hammers from Lazio, but the Brazilian’s head has dropped in recent times and he has struggled to make an impact. 

With the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Robert Snodgrass and Manuel Lanzini also in the fringes of the midfield preferences, getting Anderson off the wage bill for 2020-21 could still be a shrewd move by West Ham.
