Felipe Anderson news

Anderson wanted by Everton

Everton are reportedly weighing up a move for West Ham United attacker Felipe Anderson.

The Brazil international joined Porto on a season-long loan in the summer, but he has recently fallen out with manager Sergio Conceicao.

Hence, his deal is expected to be terminated and TEAMtalk claims that the Toffees could make a move for his services.

Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti remains an admirer of Anderson from the player's days at Lazio and he is keen on signing him.

A player is usually allowed to represent two clubs in a season, but FIFA and UEFA have increased the limit to three due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anderson's current deal with the Hammers expires in June 2022 and he could be available for a cut-price deal this month. 

He was purchased from Lazio for around £35m, but the club are unlikely to recoup more than half of the sum amid his struggles over the past year.
