Liverpool considering 26-year-old Premier League No.8 as Xherdan Shaqiri replacement

Liverpool are reportedly considering a summer swoop for West Ham United attacker Felipe Anderson.

Anderson, who arrived at West Ham from Lazio last summer, scored nine times and registered four assists in 36 Premier League appearances during the 2018-19 campaign.

According to the Daily Mail, the 26-year-old’s form during his first season in English football has attracted the attention of Liverpool, who are expected to sign a new wide attacker this summer.

The Hammers paid a club-record £36m to sign the Brazilian ahead of the 2018-19 season, though, and the fact that he still has three years left to run on his contract places the capital outfit in a strong bargaining position.

Switzerland attacker Xherdan Shaqiri could be sold to fund a move for Anderson, with the 27-year-old reportedly available for the right price this summer.
