The attacking midfielder only joined Lazio in 2013 in a £8 million deal from Brazilian giants Santos, but has been hugely impressive during his stint in Serie A.
Calciomercato.com report that scouts from Liverpool, City, and Chelsea were at the Lazio vs Fiorentina game yesterday, but the player wants to move to Anfield due to his close friendship with Reds star Philippe Coutinho.
Lazio won the game 4-0 with Anderson turning in one of his best performances to date, and Brendan Rodgers has now told his transfer committee to try and conclude the deal. It is thought Liverpool would have to part with somewhere in the region of £25 million to secure his services.
