Lazio lure Felipe Anderson from Santos

S.S. Lazio have strengthened their squad with the acquisition of Brazilian midfielder Felipe Anderson on a five-year deal from Santos FC for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old, who has reportedly cost the Rome club around €8m, made 61 league appearances for Brazilian heavyweights Santos, scoring seven goals as well as featuring in their triumphant 2011 Copa Libertadores squad.

Felipe Anderson came through the ranks at Coritiba FC where he played from 2007 to 2010. He has represented his country at youth level but is yet to make his senior international debut.
