The attacker has enjoyed a fine campaign in Serie A this season, having scored 10 goals and contributed seven assists in 20 starts and 29 overall appearances in the Italian top flight.

The Brazilian has helped the capital club into the top three and, with only three matches to play, the Biancocelesti sit inside the Champions League qualification places. Indeed, they are only one point off fierce rivals AS Roma and an automatic spot in the group stage of Europe’s premier club competition next season.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport [via Le 10 Sport], Anderson’s form has attracted the attention of the French giants.

The forward has recently extended his contract until 2020, and it is believed that Lazio would not accept a fee of less than €30 million for their star man.

The player’s agent, Stefano Castagna, has recently suggested that the player is happy with life in Rome and would be keen to help the club compete in the Champions League next season.

“It is good that the big teams are interested in him,” Castagna began, “it proves that he’s done things well, but he has just signed a new contract and he is very happy in Rome.”

However, will Paris be able to test Lazio’s resolve?
