Napoli preparing move for West Ham attacker

There has been numerous attackers linked with Napoli in past few months.

The latest reports in England suggest that Napoli are preparing move for West Ham attacker Felipe Anderson.

The Brazil international only joined West Ham from Lazio in 2018 for 38 million euros and his contract runs to June 2022.

In 64 appearances for West Ham, Anderson has managed to score 11 goals, and create 10 goals for his teammates.

The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best attackers in Brazil. As a member of Brazil national football team, Anderson won one cap.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Napoli.

Gennaro Gattuso is looking to shore up his attacking options and West Ham’s Anderson happens to be a target. Gattuso is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

There is no doubt that Felipe Anderson will take Napoli’s attack to a different level.

According to the report, “Napoli are ready to make a swap bid for West Ham attacker Felipe Anderson. Corriere dello Sport says Napoli are considering signing West Ham star Anderson in the next transfer window and are ready to offer Hirving Lozano. However, they expect the Hammers to whack on a hefty price-tag to ward them and anyone else off a move. Gennaro Gattuso is well aware of the capabilities of the winger after spending five years at Lazio. And the fiery Italian is keen to bolster his attacking options after a dismal campaign from Lozano, who joined from PSV last summer.”

Napoli will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Felipe Anderson to join the club.

Signing the 26-year-old would be a masterstroke from Gattuso.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Napoli.

How strong that interest is and whether Napoli will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
