Chelsea and both Manchester teams are ready to enter the race for Lazio attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson once the summer transfer window opens.
All three clubs are looking to add to their firepower and see the 21-year-old Brazilian international as just the man to do it.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Chelsea had scouts present to watch Anderson in action against Torino, seeing the young Brazilian score both goals in the Romans 2-0 win as well as at the club’s 0-4 win at Fiorentina on March 9th.
Manchester United however have also got in on the act with chief scout Jim Lawlor in attendance to watch last Sundays 2-0 over Verona at the Olympic Stadium in which Anderson opened the scoring after just four minutes.
Meanwhile Manchester City is also plotting for Neymar’s best buddy to join them at the Etihad next season as manager Manuel Pellegrini prepares to have a major summer clearout following a disappointing season.
