Update On Zaccagni And Felipe Anderson's Contract Renewal

With the start of the upcoming season approaching, Lazio is currently focused on finalizing their team ahead of the market closure. The club is actively working on both incoming and outgoing transfers and will continue to do so until the deadline at 8 pm on September 1st. Additionally, the team is looking at contract renewals, with Felipe Anderson and Zaccagni being top priorities. Lotito has already spoken directly with the players involved and has made it clear that discussions for new agreements will take place as soon as the summer transfer window closes.

In late July, while the team was still in Auronzo and Lotito was coming into the Lazio retreat, there was an initial meeting with Zaccagni's agent. This was a productive discussion that laid the groundwork for future negotiations, but it was not yet conclusive. Initially, Zaccagni's agent requested 3.5 million, while Lazio countered with an offer of 2.5 million plus additional incentives that could bring the total to 3 million by 2028. There is hope that a compromise can be reached, perhaps at a midpoint between the two initial figures. Zaccagni's current annual salary is just below 2 million, and his contract is set to expire in June 2025. Despite this, there is a positive outlook regarding the outcome of these negotiations.

Felipe Anderson's contract is set to expire in less than a year, and while he gave up a significant amount of money to return to Rome, he is still waiting for renewal. In 2021, he signed a 3-year contract worth 2 million per season, but he was earning 3.5 million at West Ham. Despite Lotito's promise of renewal and adjustment for consistent positive performance, Felipe has exceeded expectations to become an indispensable player for Sarri. 

Lotito is determined to keep Felipe Anderson in Rome, despite the constant interest from Saudi Arabia. However, without renewal, he would become a desirable player for Saudi Pro League clubs. Therefore, measures must be taken to secure his future. The plan is to extend his contract until 2027, with a salary of approximately 3 million per season. While residing in Rome, Felipe feels content and comfortable, as though he is in his home. His primary focus continues to be on his team, Lazio. For the moment, he is keeping a watchful eye on the market, but he plans to address contract renewals in due time.
