Liverpool are eyeing a surprise move for West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson this summer, according to the latest report.
In spite of pushing Manchester City all the way in English top-flight and reaching the final of the UEFA Champions League, manager Jurgen Klopp could look to bolster his attacking options in the summer.
The Daily Mail are now claiming that former SS Lazio star Anderson has appeared as an option for Reds, with the South American having impressed since moving to London Stadium last year.
The club paid a club-record £36 million to land Anderson last summer, and he netted 10 goals in all competitions for them this campaign in 40 appearances.
Two potential factors could help Klopp’s side get a deal over the line; the first being that Felipe was not named by his country in their Copa America squad.
The chance to play UCL football at a much bigger side could provide a huge boost for the 26-year-old star’s hopes of establishing a place in the team.
The other is that his compatriot Roberto Firmino is already at Liverpool, and he could play a role in persuading Felipe to swap London for Merseyside.
In other news, according to a recent report from Sky Sports, Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United are in the hunt to sign Liverpool’s star Harry Wilson.
Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion are also understood to be keen on the Wales international.
Report claim that Liverpool are valuing the player at £25m after his impressive campaign for Derby County in the EFL Championship.
