Lazio Improve Offer to Keep Ahold of Felipe Anderson

As president Claudio Lotito stated a few times, Lazio don’t want to lose Felipe Anderson gratis, as his contract expires on July 30th, 2024. The patron, in particular, is a big fan of the Brazilian winger, whom he brought back to the Italian capital after a few spells abroad following his departure in 2018.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Biancocelesti have renewed their efforts to strike a deal. They have proposed €3M yearly plus €500k potential add-ons. The offer would confirm his current wages.

Lazio had started low in the negotiation, tendering a €2.5M salary to Felipe Anderson, then touching it up to €2.8M. He would have had to accept a pay cut in those instances.

The veteran drew interest from Saudi Arabia in the past window but decided to stay put. He has scored just once in 11 appearances so far but has been a fairly consistent contributor and has provided 5 assists.

Our Take on Lazio and Felipe Anderson

The matter is very urgent, but it looks like the relationship between him and the club is solid enough for them to take it down to the wire. Since Gustav Tang Isaksen hasn’t earned the trust of the coach yet, they don’t have a readymade heir and would have to spend a buck to find somebody more established. It costs less to comply with his requests, and he should have at least a couple more solid campaigns in him.
