Contract renewal talks between Felipe Anderson and Lazio have reportedly stalled, as the footballer and his agents explore other options.
According to Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport, efforts to extend Anderson’s contract at Lazio have hit a standstill. Originally, an agreement in principle had been reached that would secure his tenure up till at least 2027, but the two parties have since drifted apart.
The Brazilian player is said to be demanding 4 million per season, but the club has offered 3.5 million, along with various bonuses. As a result, the player’s sister and agent have started to look elsewhere, and an Italian destination is deemed favorable.
Lazio, after extending Luis Alberto’s contract for the same salary of 4 million per season, has halted other renewal operations, beginning with Felipe Anderson’s. This news comes as the soccer transfer market continues to heat up ahead of the next season.
