FC Porto beat Nacional 4-2 for the Portuguese Cup last night, and once again, Felipe Anderson wasn’t even on the bench.

With only five appearances since joining the Dragons in October, the West Ham loanee continues struggling to get minutes at the club.

Newspaper A Bola writes about it today, claiming cup matches are usually used to give opportunities to players who don’t feature regularly, and despite having travelled with the team, the Brazilian stayed in the stands.

The outlet highlights the information that Everton have ‘shown their wish’ to sign Felipe Anderson this month, especially now that he’s not satisfied in Portugal.

Even though the Portuguese media is still to bring any strong information on the player’s future, they continue making it clear that he wouldn’t be missed in case West Ham call him back from the loan spell.

This time, A Bola even add a caption saying Felipe Anderson ‘should leave before the end of the month’, although that sounds more like an assumption due to his situation than some real update on the talks for a move.
