Lazio Hold Slim Hope for Juventus Bound Felipe Anderson

Lazio are still hoping Felipe Anderson will sign a new contract in the Italian capital, despite the fact that a move to Juventus is now looking increasingly likely.

The 30-year-old Brazilian has entered the last six months of his contract with the Biancocelesti and has so far resisted any of their offers, holding out for a more lucrative deal. The slow progression of talks allowed the Bianconeri to emerge and they’ve drawn up a contract for the winger.

Felipe Anderson has not managed to hit his stride with Lazio this season, managing just two goals and seven assists in 31 appearances across all competitions. Despite that, he’s retained the trust of Maurizio Sarri, seeing over 2200 minutes of action.

As reported by Il Messaggero (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Lazio president Claudio Lotito doesn’t want to lose Felipe Anderson and has proposed a four-year contract worth €3 million net per season with €500,000 in easily achievable add-ons.

Juventus have offered the Brazilian winger a multi-year deal worth €4 million net per season plus a significant signing bonus, something that is proving tempting. A new meeting will be held with Bianconeri sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli in the coming weeks, one that could prove decisive.
