Report: Liverpool want to sign influential West Ham United forward

Felipe Anderson bagged himself 10 goals during his maiden Premier League season and the league runners-up are keen to pounce.

Liverpool could be set for a summer raid on West Ham United to sign forward Felipe Anderson, according to the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian who has the versatility to play anywhere across the front three signed for the Hammers last summer for £36 million (BBC Sport).

Anderson enjoyed a sound maiden campaign in the Premier League, bagging 10 goals and registering five assists. His form helped the Hammers recover from a poor start to 2018/19 and finish tenth.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp saw his side fall agonisingly short in their quest to claim an elusive Premier League crown. Despite finishing with 97 points and losing just once the silverware went to Manchester City.

The Reds incumbent will hope to add a few bits of quality to his squad in the summer to ensure another tilt at the famous trophy next season.

 

TBR Verdict

Very few Liverpool supporters will have seen this transfer link incoming. Anderson only arrived at the Hammers last summer it seems likely to take a sizeable sum to prise him away.

The 26-year-old is on £85k-a-week at the London Stadium, according to Spotrac, so salary won’t be a problem. After paying a club record £36 million, however, the Hammers are likely to want profit on that.

Anderson would be a worthy signing though. He knows the league, has proved he is capable of producing the goods in the Premier League and he would fit into Liverpool’s style of play.

There will be other players linked with Liverpool this summer, that goes without saying. Anderson, however, would represent a solid signing should Klopp be able to do a deal with West Ham.
