West Ham planning to recall Anderson from Porto

West Ham are looking at ending the unproductive spell of Felipe Anderson at Porto. They are seeking to safeguard the value of the Brazilian winger by finding him a new loan club.

Anderson has struggled since joining Porto in October on a seasonal loan. He has made three appearances for the Portuguese champions in all competitions. In the summer, West Ham would look to sell Anderson and will struggle to get a high price if he barely played this season.

Anderson may join another European club on a temporary basis this month if his spell at Porto is cut short. When they signed Anderson from Lazio in the summer of 2019 for £ 37m, West Ham smashed their transfer record. In his first season, he impressed, scoring 10 goals in all competitions as Manuel Pellegrini led the club in the Premier League to 10th place.

However, Anderson’s star waned as last season’s results declined. And when David Moyes replaced Pellegrini as West Ham’s manager in December 2019, he found himself out of favor. With one goal, he concluded the campaign and found himself on the bench as Moyes rescued West Ham from relegation. The Austrian forward’s £ 300,000-a-week salary, however, suggests that a reunion is highly unlikely.
