West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson should be delighted by the potential signing of Sebastian Haller.

Football London have reported how West Ham co-owner David Sullivan is the main man behind the transfer negotiations for Haller, with Mario Husillos currently in China, and he was discussing the deal at the weekend.

The Hammers are hoping to wrap up a deal for Haller with Eintract Frankfurt as quickly as possible, as they aim to snap up the target man.

And if Haller does arrive at West Ham it should absolutely delight Anderson, because he could help to take the Brazilian’s game to the next level.


Anderson arrived at West Ham for £35 million (Sky Sports) last summer, and he showed plenty of promise.

There is a hope that Anderson could really take the league by storm this term though, and Haller’s arrival would help to do that.

Haller could help to bring Anderson in to play, as his hold-up play is so strong.

The powerful forward would also be available to get on the end of Anderson’s deliveries from out wide, which have been very dangerous.

West Ham didn’t manage to find a really prolific scorer last season, with Marko Arnautovic’s head turned.

But with Haller in their squad then West Ham would have a real goalscorer, and the transfer links should seriously excite Anderson in particular.
