Everton must consider signing Arsenal target Felipe Anderson from West Ham United who is available on loan for just £5 million.
West Ham United manager David Moyes has put Felipe Anderson on the market and is reportedly available for a loan fee of just £5 million. The Brazilian has had a torrid last season at Hammers and is himself keen to revive himself in the Premier League. Arsenal are said to be interested in his services. Everton must also look into the possibility of signing the 27 year old.
Felipe Anderson traded the Serie A for Premier League in 2018 when he joined West Ham United from Lazio for a fee in the region of £36 million. The winger has had two very contrasting seasons in England.
Under Manuel Pellegrini, Felipe Anderson looked to be the rising protagonist who could propel the Hammers to excellent results. In 40 appearances, Anderson scored 10 goals and created 5, a decent return for someone who played a polar opposite style in Serie A for 5 years.
Last season, the displays of 27 year old were underwhelming and spiritless. In 27 games throughout the season, Felipe Anderson could only manage 1 goal. David Moyes is left unimpressed by the Brazilian and wants to get rid of the player. It is clear that no one is going to offer a similar sum that West Ham paid to Lazio, so Hammers are ready to let him go on a loan deal.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal have been offered Felipe Anderson by West Ham United. The Gunners could sign him on a temporary move that will cost just £5 million. If West Ham want are ready to offload him on load for a minimal fee, Everton must consider bringing him to Goodison Park.
The 27 year old offers loads of attacking versatility. The Toffees want a forward capable of playing anywhere in the attack line. The Toffees have reportedly spent a total of £65 million on three players: Allan, James Rodriguez and Abdoulaye Doucoure. So, a big money move for a forward looks unlikely, considering the financial damage every club has endured due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
In such circumstance, acquiring an attacker on loan will do the trick for the Royal Blues. There are whispers of Wilfried Zaha but no major breakthrough has been achieved. Here is West Ham United, shouting at the top of their voice in the transfer market to the clubs to come and take Anderson.
At £5 million, it certainly won’t hurt the pockets of Farhad Moshiri and if the performances further deteriorate, Everton won’t have to bear the consequences. Even though Felipe Anderson has not been inspiring last term, his overall talent gives him the opportunity to bounce back. He is a player Everton must consider.
