Man Utd transfer news: Louis van Gaal targets Lazio's Felipe Anderson - Telegraph
Manchester United are stepping up their interest in Lazio’s Felipe Anderson after sending chief scout Jim Lawlor to watch him on Sunday.
Anderson, the Brazilian forward, has been added to Louis van Gaal’s list of potential summer targets and scored in front of Lawlor in Lazio’s 2-0 win over Verona.
The 21-year-old only signed a new contract with the Serie A club last week but is understood to figure highly on Van Gaal’s transfer priorities at the end of this season.
Lazio could demand around £30million for the attacker, who is yet to be capped by the Brazil senior team but is attracting attention from many of the top clubs in Europe.
He said: "My story with Lazio is only just beginning. I`m really at home in Rome. Lazio has believed in my potential since the start and even my family is happy."
