Felipe Anderson remains a coveted target for Juventus as a free agent. However, recent reports suggest that he is contemplating a contract extension with Lazio.

Initially, the Brazilian appeared poised to depart when negotiations for a new deal at the Stadio Olimpico stalled. His existing contract is set to expire on June 30, allowing him to engage in discussions with potential new clubs.

While Juventus appeared to be the frontrunners, the situation has evolved. According to reports from LaLazioSiamoNoi.it and Tuttomercatoweb, Felipe Anderson is now open to revisiting talks for a potential extension at Lazio, with negotiations back on track.

Turning 31 in April, this marks his second stint at Lazio, having previously played for the Biancocelesti from 2013 to 2018. After spells at West Ham United and FC Porto, he returned to Lazio in the summer of 2021, contributing to their second-place finish in Serie A last season.

However, his performances this season have been less consistent, with only two goals and seven assists in 31 competitive matches.
