According to The Times, West Ham United is aiming to sell Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson this summer as manager David Moyes is trying to raise funds to boost additional areas of his squad.

The 27-year-old had a poor season, scoring just once in 24 appearances in the league and not doing enough to help avoid the drop in the battle of the club.

In the summer of 2018, the Hammers found arrangements to carry Anderson from Lazio to London Stadium with a £36 million record in the club at that time.

While impressed by his debut campaign, scoring nine goals and registering four assists, over the past 12 months, Brazil international has not lived up to the hype.

Nonetheless, Anderson, who receives £85,000 a week, draws attention from clubs abroad and West Ham must look for cash because he only has two years left on his deal.

The Hammers, currently 16th, are trying to hang on to their top-flight status with only three games remaining, and today ‘s six-pointer against 17th-placed Watford – who are just behind them on goal difference – could go a long way in deciding their destiny.

Anderson is not expected to play a part in the clash because he is not fully fit and it remains to be seen if he will be ready for the games against Manchester United and Aston Villa.
