Arsenal has shown their interest in unwanted West ham winger Felipe Anderson. Arsenal fans will be hoping that their transfer business isn’t quite done yet this summer, but it would be a surprise to see them move for another attacking player.
They already have Willian, Lacazette, Pepe, Saka, Martinelli, Aubameyang and Nketiah to play in the attacking roles ahead of next season, but a report from Football Insider has suggested that West Ham winger Felipe Anderson has emerged as a target.
Felipe Anderson is a pacey and skillful player and he was highly rated at Lazio so it was a surprise when he left for West Ham.
The report claims that West Ham paid up to £42m to sign Felipe Anderson so they are looking to get as much of that as possible, so it’s not going to be a cheap operation for Arsenal. Although Arsenal will prefer a loan deal now and pay for him next season if he did perform to expectations.
Anderson got pace and he can play on either side of the attack, while he also has the quality to unlock a defence and produce something out of nothing. It’s one of those strange reports that’s so surprising you almost start to wonder if there is something in it, but it does look like someone would need to leave The Emirates first.
