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."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
