Chelsea are preparing a summer swoop for Lazio star Felipe Anderson, according to reports in Italy.
The 24-year-old has long been linked with a move to England after impressing in Italy over the past few seasons.
Manchester United have often been reported as the Lazio midfielder’s most likely destination as they have scouted him on numerous occasions.
But now, according to Il Messaggero, it is Chelsea who are lining up a summer bid for Anderson.
The Blues are said to be in the market for a creative midfielder and scouts believe the Brazilian fits the bill.
Interest from Manchester United in Anderson has cooled, but Napoli are reportedly keeping tabs on his situation.
