Felipe Anderson: His move to Lazio from Santos is being held up

The Serie A club have held a long-standing interest in the Santos star and he agreed a deal to sign for them back in January.

However, the move eventually collapsed when the paperwork from Brazil arrived after the transfer deadline.

The Biancocelesti are keen to revive the move this summer but talks are being held up by UK-based investment fund Doyen Sports, which owns 50% of the player's registration.

Lotito says an agreement has been reached between Lazio and Santos but he will not bow to what he feels are unreasonable terms being offered by Doyen Sports.

"Anderson is a good player and should we be able to sign him, we will see him soon," Lotito told Radio Radio. "But we won't be conditioned by an attitude of extortion.

"The guy wants to come to Lazio, the clubs agree, but whoever has a percentage of his ownership is using it as a blackmail and I don't agree."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
