FC Porto sign Felipe Anderson and Malang Sarr on loan

FC Porto have brought in Felipe Anderson from West Ham and Chelsea new boy Malang Sarr, both on loan.

Both are dry loan deals with Porto not having an option to buy either player.

Anderson, 27, was West Ham’s record signing until Sebastien Haller’s arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt last year.

Signed in the Manuel Pellegrini era, the Brazilian excited fans in his early days at the London Stadium.

In his first season in England, Anderson scored nine goals for the Hammers.

Anderson’s second year in England did not go as well, with the left-winger putting in some inconsistent performances.

The two-time Brazil international will now spend the season at Porto, where he play Champions League football.

Porto turned to Anderson after talks for Thomas Lemar (Atletico Madrid) and Pepê (Gremio) didn’t pan out.

Sarr arrives

Porto have also reinforced their backline with the signing of Malang Sarr on loan from Chelsea.

The 21-year-old defender was in high demand after leaving Nice when his contract expired.

Chelsea won the race for his signature with the plan from the start being to loan him out.

Sarr is a France under-21 international and Chelsea want him to gain experience before he joins their squad.
