According to Fabrizio Romano, Everton have been offered the chance to sign Felipe Anderson from West Ham.

However, the transfer specialist says that the Brazil international is not a priority for the Toffees right now.

Anderson – who cost West Ham £36 million – is currently on loan at FC Porto after finding life at the London Stadium hard under David Moyes.

The 27-year-old is also struggling over in Portugal.

In ten appearances this season, the former Lazio attacker has scored just once.

Interestingly, even before Romano’s revelation, there were suggestions that Carlo Ancelotti was already monitoring the Brasília-born forward.

A report from TEAMtalk said that the Toffees boss is considering a swoop for the South American, with Bernard’s future at Goodison Park uncertain.

In our view, there’s not much point in signing Anderson.

He would, presumably, arrive with big wage demands, as Spotrac says he earns a yearly salary of £4,420,000, which is £85,000-a-week.

Furthermore, he did little at West Ham to suggest he would actually be effective for Everton.

In 72 games for the Hammers, Anderson scored just 12 goals following his big-money move from Serie A.

There would be far greater benefits in giving academy prospect Anthony Gordon more action, instead of signing a Premier League rival’s unwanted goods.
