West Ham ace must step it up in 2019/20 to justify surprise transfer links

West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson has emerged as a transfer target for Liverpool.

The Daily Mail have reported a list of players the Reds are understood to be interested in, and the Brazilian winger has apparently made the grade.

Anderson impressed in flashes in 2018/19 but still left a lot to be desired in the eyes of some Hammers supporters.

In total he made 40 appearances in his debut season and contributed to 10 goals (nine goals, one assist).

The £41.5 million signing (BBC Sport) is considered one of the best players outside the top six, and was linked with another surprise move to Real Madrid earlier this year (Sky Sports).

 

TBR’s view

Despite Anderson’s obvious flair, the fact that both Real Madrid and Liverpool have reportedly shown an interest in him is somewhat surprising.

Considering the outlay it took to sign him, Anderson’s 10 goal involvements are nothing too special.

That said, although inconsistent he has generally been above average in his first season in English football, but will surely need to step things up next term if he is to justify the European superpowers’ current interest in him – assuming, of course, he doesn’t actually leave the club for one of those sides this summer.

The 26-year-old – who earns £85,000-a-week according to Spotrac – has a feel for the nature of the Premier League now, and he has every chance of showing the potential to become a Liverpool or Real Madrid-quality player.
