Juventus is said to be contemplating a move for Felipe Anderson, whose request for a contract extension at Lazio has been rejected.
Anderson has played a crucial role for Maurizio Sarri’s team this season, participating in all 18 Serie A matches thus far. Despite his significant contributions, his future at Lazio seems uncertain.
As his contract with Lazio will conclude at the end of the season, Juventus is considering the possibility of securing the 30-year-old as a free agent.
Lazio has proposed an initial contract renewal to Anderson, suggesting an extension that would keep him at the Stadio Olimpico until 2028 with an annual salary of €3.5 million (£3m/$3.82m) net.
However, the offer falls below the financial expectations of the former West Ham midfielder, who is seeking €4 million. Although Juventus has not made a formal approach for Anderson, they are closely observing the situation and considering the feasibility of securing his services without paying any transfer fees.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport, Juventus has engaged in discussions with Anderson’s agent on multiple occasions to discern the conditions necessary for the player to join Turin. The club’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, holds a positive view of the Brazil international and is keen on a pre-contract agreement, capitalizing on ongoing extension negotiations between Anderson and Lazio.
