The Sun says his association with Dutch club Roda JC has prompted anger among the Jewish community after his “quenelle" storm.
But Jews in the town of Kerkrade, on the Holland-German border, remember the France international making a “quenelle" gesture when he was playing for West Brom in December 2013.
He was banned for five matches, fined £80,000 and sacked eventually by the Baggies despite the FA disciplinary committee ruling he was not promoting anti-Semitism.
Jewish leader Ron van der Wieken said: “This is a disgraceful matter.
“We cannot believe Roda JC are dealing with him. We would like to tell Mister Anelka how shocking his quenelle gesture was towards Jewish people."
