Lazio complete Felipe Anderson deal

www.sslazio.it/
Lazio have completed the signing of Felipe Anderson from Santos for an undisclosed fee, according to the club's official website.

The 20-year-old had been set to join the Biancocelesti in January, but the move fell through following complications over the necessary paperwork.

But the Serie A side have now secured his signature on a five-year deal, with a fee of €8 million thought to have been agreed between the sides last month.

The negotiations involved in the deal have been drawn out though, due to the complicated involvement of third-party investors.

Lazio’s director of sport Igli Tare said they were the "most paradoxical and shocking" negotiations he has ever been involved in.

It has been reported that Santos will net €4 million from Anderson’s sale and 25 per cent of any future transfer fee for the midfielder, while Doyen Sports will be handed €3.8m for their share.

Anderson is a product of the Pexie’s youth academy and made his official first team debut aged 17 in October 2010.

The Brazil Under-20 international will now continue his career in the Italian capital, joining compatriots Hernanes, Ederson and Andre Dias at the Stadio Olimpico.
