Report: Fiorentina consider West Ham winger Felipe Anderson

West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson is on Fiorentina’s radar, according to a report from Gianluca Di Marzio.

Anderson could be on the move once again this month. The 27-year-old joined Porto in the summer. However, he has barely featured for the club and looks to be on his way back to the London Stadium.

The Guardian reported earlier this month that West Ham could recall the Brazilian to potentially send him elsewhere. And should they do that, it appears that there will be clubs keen to take him for the second-half of the campaign.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Fiorentina have included Anderson on their wishlist. Admittedly, Aleksandr Kokorin is said to be their priority as they look to bolster their attacking options.

But Anderson is also reportedly under consideration.

A move to Fiorentina could prove beneficial to West Ham if he leaves on loan.

 

With Anderson not in David Moyes’s plans currently, it appears that the Hammers’ priority will be securing the largest fee possible for him – whether that be in this window or further down the line.

West Ham paid £37 million for Anderson (fee reported by the Guardian). Meanwhile, Spotrac shows that he earns £85,000-a-week.

So the Irons are in a difficult position. They may want to offload him sooner rather than later. But they will be wary of making a substantial loss.

Joining Fiorentina would see Anderson return to a league where he has previously shone. It is also a league that has the kind of profile that could have a significant impact on his value.
