According to TEAMtalk, Everton are interested in signing Felipe Anderson from West Ham United in the January transfer window.

Anderson is set to be sent back to West Ham from his loan spell at FC Porto, and Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti reportedly wants to bring him to Goodison Park.

The report has added that although the 27-year-old attacking midfielder has played for both West Ham and Porto this season, FIFA and UEFA ‘will relax their transfer regulations’ due to the global health pandemic.

It has been claimed that although the Brazil international – described as one of the “most exciting talents in European football” by then West Ham Director of Football Mario Husillos on the club’s official website in July 2018 – is open to playing for the Hammers, manager David Moyes does not fancy him in his team.

Surprise transfer rumour

Anderson has not made a huge impact at West Ham, and although the 27-year-old is a very good player, it is a surprise to see Everton linked with him.

The Toffees have a good attacking unit. James Rodriguez is doing well for the Merseyside club.

According to WhoScored, Anderson has played just 49 minutes in the Portuguese league for Porto so far this season, while during the 2019-20 campaign, the Brazilian scored one goal and provided four assists in 25 Premier League matches for the Hammers.
