West Ham United to recall Felipe Anderson from FC Porto


After Brighton recalled Jakub Moder from his loan deal, West Ham United have also decided that Felipe Anderson must return from his FC Porto loan.

David Moyes and West Ham United are said to have recalled Felipe Anderson from his loan, shortening his stay at FC Porto.

The Brazilian made the switch over the summer and agreed to a one-season loan deal. With the player unable to make the first team at Porto as a regular player, Hammers management felt it was best to bring him back and find other solutions better suited for him and the club.

Following his return to London Stadium, it is said that the club are looking to get rid of Anderson in search of a new destination for the 27-year-old.

The transfer news feed reads as follows:

More Transfers and rumors

Since joining La Liga NOS, Felipe Anderson has featured at least three times in all competitions.

He hasn’t scored or assisted a single goal for Porto, struggling to find their rhythm in the Portuguese league. Not what the English club need when they want to increase their value before they sell.

Manuel Pelligrini broke the Brazilian’s bank in 2018/19, where the club shelled out € 38million to bring the player from Lazio on a permanent transfer.

The player led West Ham to a record 10th place with 13 G / A in the English Premier League. However, Anderson failed to replicate this form and struggled with injuries from time to time in his follow-up campaigns. This led to him being put on the bench by David Moyes when he took over from Pellegrini.

Pellegrini’s departure weighed on the Brazilian striker’s future in West London. With the player not in Moyes’ plans, West Ham United rather sent it on loan.

The club will look to send Felipe Anderson on loan again to another European club and cash it in the next transfer window.

Is it a good move for West Ham United to recall Felipe Anderson?
