Oscar wants Chelsea to sign Felipe Anderson

Chelsea playmaker Oscar has urged Jose Mourinho to sign Lazio’s highly-rated attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson when the transfer window re-opens this summer.

Anderson, 22, has caught the eye of Europe’s top clubs this season thanks to his exciting performances in Serie A.

The Brazil Under-21 international has scored 10 goals and provided six assists in 24 league matches this season - and has even been compared to Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo on account of his searing pace, trickery and eye for goal.

Oscar: Anderson is 'amazing'

Anderson’s compatriot Oscar has hailed to in-demand Lazio star, calling him “amazing”, and feels the best is still to come from the former Santos starlet.

“He could really be useful here,” Oscar was quoted as saying the Mirror. “We’ve played together at U20 level for Brazil and he was amazing. He can become even better and great players are always welcome at Chelsea.”

Potential superstar

Anderson is not the finished article just yet, but his talent is enormous. Capable of playing off either flank - or either foot, for that matter - the South American gem could potentially become a superstar at one of the world’s top clubs.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City have all looked at the attacking winger this season, while Chelsea also have a reported interest.

But whether Mourinho will make a formal move for the Brazilian is doubtful, with Eden Hazard having made the left-wing position his own and both Willian and January signing Juan Cuadrado currently competing for the right-wing spot.
