Felipe Anderson wants Chelsea?

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Felipe Anderson’s agents are working for the Lazio forward to join Chelsea.

The young Brazilian had famously been very close to Manchester United last year, but the club insisted it had turned down a €50m offer.

Felipe Anderson recently changed his agent to Giuliano Bertolucci, who is affiliated with Kia Joorabchian.

It’s reported that they are working on a Premier League move for their client, specifically to Chelsea.

He’d get to work with Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

The rapid 23-year-old is under contract with Lazio until June 2020, but his rapport with the club has become increasingly tense.

This week the Biancocelesti announced new Coach Marcelo Bielsa only for him to resign two days later – before even turning up for pre-season training.

However, Lazio are notoriously tough negotiators and don't seem prepared to let him go for less than €30m.
