Hammers to snub swap deal

Hirving Lozano

Napoli’s hopes of snatching Felipe Anderson out of West Ham have taken a dive!

For according to Corriere dello Sport the Serie A outfit are hoping to offer the Mexican Hirving Lozano in exchange for Anderson’s services.

It would be the cheekiest of bids and will unquestionably be stone walled by the Hammers who would be totally disinterested in any swap deal.

Apart from that the Mexican has had a poor campaign in Serie A playing just eight games for two goals since a £36 million move to Napoli.

That was the same fee as we paid for Anderson who had a fine first season but has been out of touch during the present campaign.

He has been regularly discussed as a possible transfer target given that David Moyes has sent him down the pecking order since the Anfield defeat.

He and Manu Lanzini as the main creative force have misfired and it now remains to see what happens to his future but a swap deal would not do it anyway for the Hammers.

  1. Interesting that Sky put Anderson in their alternative team if the season, I feel sorry for him that because he is shy of a 50/50 he is imho unfairly judged as said numerous times his defensive stats are outstanding, he protects the ball well by retaining it, technically he is at a different level to every player in our squad. He could improve his aggression and key passes for sure but it is a small negative compared to the positives he brings. As for Lozano would love to see him rebuild at our club, he was immense for PSV and could definitely be a great number 10 alongside Haller.

  2. Hugh do you have an inside source to say that Anderson has fallen out of favour – ortherwise this statement is based on only two games (Southampton and Arsenal)

    • I wrote a blog . I don’t think he is a Moyes type player. He was pulled off at Anfield and has barely been seen since. It’s assumption but a reasonable one maybe Zahama
