Felipe Anderson, the 30-year-old Brazilian, could possibly depart from Lazio as he has no intentions of renewing his contract and has reportedly offered himself to Juventus. According to Italian newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, Anderson’s agent, Juliana Gomes, who is also his sister, has already met with the Juventus management twice to coordinate his transfer to Turin.
While Juventus’ head coach, Massimiliano Allegri, stands firm on improving the assets available to him rather than relying on the January transfer market, it’s evident that an opportunity like this could potentially sway his decision. As it stands, Lazio has made no clear intentions of extending Anderson’s contract.
Relatively unflappable opportunities such as these may just be the shake-up needed in the January transfer market. Despite Allegri’s stance, it’s hard to ignore the potential positives that new additions to a team can bring. Whether Felipe Anderson’s possible transfer to Juventus happens in the near future, remains to be seen.
