The Brazilian Under-21 international has caught the eye in Serie A this season with some fine displays from out wide, contributing a highly impressive ten goals and six assists to his side’s cause.
This appears to have put Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho on alert ahead of the summer, despite the Blues already having plenty of other options in the attacking midfield department, such as Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian and January signing Juan Cuadrado.
Still, Anderson looks a top talent and has also reportedly sparked interest from Chelsea’s rivals Manchester United, who were also linked with the player by the Daily Telegraph earlier this week.
It remains to be seen if Anderson would get into this current Chelsea side, but the Blues have got a recent record of buying young players with the intention of loaning them out to feeder club Vitesse.
