Danny Mills has claimed Felipe Anderson would benefit from a move away from West Ham to a “better” side.
The former England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the 26-year-old would be better suited to a team that has more possession of the ball.
As revealed by Football Insider, the Hammers are willing to listen to offers for the Brazilian with Napoli one of a number of clubs chasing his signature.
Anderson has two years left on his contract at the London Stadium having arrived from Lazio in a £34million deal, which could potentially rise to £42million, in the summer of 2018.
The attacker has scored once and assisted four in his 22 appearances in a relegation-threatened David Moyes side.
When asked by Football Insider if a summer exit could be on the cards, Mills said: “West Ham will be thinking about what will happen if they go down.
“They have a lot of talent on their books which have not performed. If they are looking at recruitment they are going to have to shift players out before.
“Anderson is a good player but he is the sort of player that would benefit from being in a better team that keeps possession of the ball more. He would look like even more of a player in a better side.
“West Ham thought they were going to be challenging higher up the league but they are not.”
The Irons’ attacking options were bolstered by the arrival of Jarrod Bowen in January and with Grady Diangana impressing whilst on loan at West Brom this season, David Moyes may use funds from a potential sale to invest in other areas of the squad.
