Lazio winger Felipe Anderson has reportedly agreed to sign his new contract and is set to put pen to paper next week.
The 30-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of this season and the club have been in talks with his sister-agent Juliana Gomes in recent weeks trying to iron out a new contract. Negotiations have been slow but progress has slowly been made as president Claudio Lotito increased his offers.
Felipe Anderson agreed to take a pay cut when he returned to Lazio from West Ham in the summer of 2021 and was keen to see a significant raise in his new deal, which Lotito finally accepted this month, offering him a five-year deal worth around €3 million net per season plus €500,000 in add-ons.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Felipe Anderson contacted Lazio’s management this week to confirm that he’s ready to sign his new contract, extending his stay at the club to June 2028.
The decisive meeting is expected to take place next week and an official announcement is set to arrive soon after.
