'They haven’t got a clue': Some WHUFC fans slam Sullivan and Gold after 'horrendous' transfer update
West Ham supporters have slammed the club following a transfer update regarding Felipe Anderson.
According to Corrie dello Sport, Lazio are interested in signing the Brazilian attacker on loan with an obligation to buy. Anderson’s contract expires next summer. However, the Italian side would still have pay €8m (£6.7m) for the attacker at the end of this proposed deal.
Anderson was once West Ham’s club record signing as reported by BBC Sport. However, the Brazilian winger is now likely to depart the east London side for a huge loss.
This won’t be the first time West Ham have made a sizeable loss on a player. Last January saw Sebastien Haller depart the club for Ajax for a fee that was close to half of what the Hammers paid for the French attacker in 2019.
Anderson spent last season with FC Porto, where he failed to impress for the Portuguese giants. And now it appears that the Brazilian international will be departing the club for good this summer.
Despite the winger having no future with the club, some West Ham fans on social media were fuming that the board would allow Anderson to leave for so little.
Here’s what some West Ham fans had to say on Twitter about the proposed transfer of Felipe Anderson back to Lazio…
They haven’t got a clue. What is the point in loaning him out for a season when he’s a free agent at the end of it so lazio can get him for free anyway.— Dean Smith (@smudgerdc) June 28, 2021
The best way to do it is if they really want to loan him then once the loan is up they must pay West Ham £10m for Anderson ⚒
