Chelsea keen on signing Lazio attacker Felipe Anderson before the new season start. Blues have problems in front-line as Hazard preparing to leave the club and join Real Madrid meanwhile, Willian heavily linked with Man United. Besides that, Conte fired from the club officially today and new manager Maurizio Sarri will demand to sign several players.
Anderson is Chelsea long-term target and Blues want to finally sign Brazil international who joined Lazio from Santos in 2013 with a £7m deal. The 25-year-old heavily linked with Liverpool and West Ham United, so Chelsea have to sign him fastly to avoid problems. Lazio can increase Anderson price as many clubs are interested to add him and the Italian club will take much more money than the planning.
In this season Felipe played 32 games, scored 8 goals and made 10 assists in all competition. Brazilian winger contracted with the Eagles until 2020 and his price is nearly £35m. Chelsea bosses ready to pay much money this summer to improve their squad and will be able to fight for the titles next season. London club is the best option for the Brazil international and probably he will choose the Blues.
