West Ham star Felipe Anderson wanted by Napoli in transfer return to Italy this summer – The Sun

FELIPE ANDERSON is a summer transfer target for Italian outfit Napoli, according to reports.

The Serie A club are preparing for life without Jose Callejon with the the forward expected to leave when the window reopens.

And therefore according to Corriere dello Sport, Napoli have lined up Anderson as a possible replacement.

The Italians know they face a tough task landing the Brazilian, though, as he is one of West Ham's star players.

For that reason, Gennaro Gattuso is also looking at ex-Chelsea youngster Jeremie Boga who is shining at Sassuolo.

Everton Soares from Gremio, AZ Alkmaar's Oussama Idrissi and Milot Rashica, who plays for Werder Bremen, are some of the other names on the reported wish list.

But convincing the Hammers to let Anderson go would be a major coup for Napoli.

The Brazilian arrived from another Serie A side, Lazio, for a club-record £45million in July 2018.

He hit the ground running with ten goals and five assists in his first season in East London.

But this campaign has been far more frustrating for the two-cap Brazil international.

His only goal of the season so far, from 24 appearances, came in the 4-0 thumping of Bournemouth on New Year's Day.

Since January 10, though, he has started just once in the Premier League, missing a few weeks with a back injury and then coming on for the final minutes against Southampton and Arsenal.

David Moyes does have plenty of options when it comes to attacking players to support the central striker.

Manuel Lanzini, Robert Snodgrass, Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals, Andriy Yarmolenko and Jarrod Bowen can all play across the advanced midfield roles for the Hammers.
