West Ham reportedly offer playmaker to Arsenal in £5m loan deal

West Have offered the services of Felipe Anderson to Arsenal on loan for a fee of £5million.

The 27-year-old Brazilian has struggled to make an impact at West Ham as of late and has fallen down the pecking order under Moyes after glimpses of promise in his debut season at the East London club.

Anderson managed to score just one goal and created a further four last season and is believed to be keen on a fresh start elsewhere.

Arsenal are looking to improve their squad options under Mikel Arteta and the opportunity to sign the playmaker on a cut-price deal could prove to be a tempting one for the Gunners.

However, Anderson’s wages of £140-a-week could prove to be a stumbling block, unless both clubs can agree on a percentage each can pay the player for the season.

Anderson made the move to West Ham from Lazio in 2018 for £36million and was an important first-team player in his first campaign, scoring 10 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions. But his attitude and commitment to the club as been called into question as of late.

Arteta has already managed to sign Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes this summer and is keen on a move for Thomas Partey.

Despite the tempting offer by West Ham, Arteta is interested in signing Dani Ceballos on loan once again from Real Madrid, meaning there may not be space for Anderson as well.
