West Ham United could face a battle to keep hold of midfielder Felipe Anderson following reports Liverpool are showing a keen interest.

Anderson has impressed since arriving at the London Stadium in a £40million deal last summer and chipped in with nine goals, which has caught the eye of rival clubs.

Real Madrid were linked with a swoop in the January transfer window and could make another approach this summer, while Liverpool are also said to be in the hunt.

The Hammers are reported to have an agreement in place with the Brazilian that they will not stand in his way if any big clubs come in and match their valuation of him.

That figure is reported to stand at £75million and it remains to be seen whether Liverpool and Real would be willing to go that high.

West Ham would use the money to strengthen their own squad and are unlikely to budge from the valuation as Anderson is tied to a lengthy contract.
