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."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
