AC Milan considering last-minute signing

English press reports on AC Milan’s interest in former Lazio winger Felipe Anderson, currently on loan in Portugual.

In the last weeks AC Milan have been quite vulnerable on the right wing. Alexis Saelemaekers has been out practically all January while Samuel Castillejo has had injury problems of his own.

According to reports from England, AC Milan are considering the signing of Wet Ham winger Felipe Anderson. The Brazilian has played for five seasons in the past in Serie A before joining West Ham for a figure of 38 million euros.

Felipe Anderson is currently on loan at Porto but has not received the play time promised and wants to leave. He has made just 4 appearances in Portugal and coach Sergio Conceicao does not value his contribution.

Daily Mail reports that AC Milan have asked West Ham for information on the Brazilian’s status. Anderson did quite well during his time in Italy and hopes that a return could help him relaunch his career.

West Ham are open to let their player leave on loan but only with the obligation to buy. The contract of Anderson expires in 2022 so in the summer he will be available for a low fee. Maldini and Massara are looking at his candidacy. Otavio on the other hand is an option only for the summer.
