Chelsea plotting Felipe Anderson bid

Brazilian midfielder Felipe Anderson is once again linked with a Premier League move.

The 24-year-old had been previously wanted by Manchester City but he remained with Lazio who are now said to be willing to listen to offers for their star performer.

Italian media outlet Tuttosport now claim that Chelsea are willing to throw themselves in the race for the Lazio star who is likely to cost up to £40 million. In addition to Chelsea and Manchester City, another club said to be looking towards Felipe Anderson are Manchester United.

Anderson joined Biancocelesti from Santos ahead of the 2013/14 season and wasted no time in establishing himself as a vital part of Lazio squad over the past three seasons.

The Brazilian however battled several injury issues and largely failed to recreate his flying form this term, making only 11 Serie A appearances for Lazio. He featured in four Europa League matches, however, including the Thursday’s 2-2 stalemate against Dynamo Kyiv.
