Lazio Wary of Possible Juventus Interest in Winger

Lazio have slowed down in the talks with Felipe Anderson, which seemed destined for a positive resolution in the last couple of weeks, and fear Juventus could be behind the impasse. The Biancocelesti have put the negotiations on hold while they sort their issues on the pitch, Il Messaggero informs (via OneFootball).

The Brazilian hasn’t performed particularly well in the last month, which hasn’t helped his case. The capital club believes the Bianconeri might try adding him on a Bosman transfer.

On top of Felipe Anderson, Juventus have been linked to Mattia Zaccagni, whose Lazio contract runs out in 2025. The attacker voiced his desire to stay. However, the rapport between his agent Mario Giuffredi and the side is rather icy.

The duo hasn’t been as productive as in the past season, which has contributed to their struggles. They have combined for just two goals. They had both reached the double-digit threshold in the previous campaign.

Our Take on Lazio, Felipe Anderson, and Juventus

The reports are all over the place, as it can’t be somebody else’s fault if their president halted some negotiations due to their poor form. Plus, the Old Lady doesn’t seem in a phase where they’d sign aging players, even though they’d save on the fee, especially if they don’t fit their scheme. His agent is probably at work, and the root of the problem is most likely simply economic.
