Agent declares Lazio ace Felipe Anderson will surpass Neymar

High profile agent Franco Zavaglia believes Lazio ace Felipe Anderson will surpass Barcelona star Neymar.

Anderson has been in sensational form for Lazio since Christmas.

"He is 70% of his potential, when he has completed his physique, we'll see exactly how good he is," Zavaglia told Leggo. "Watching him play against those of the same age you could see he was clearly superior to all.

"I saw him by chance in a Paulista championship match with the shirt of Santos, that year they had a team of other future champions like Rafael (now with Napoli), Jonathan (Inter), Neymar (Barcelona), Ganso (Sao Paulo) and Danilo (Porto).

"I was impressed because he was several levels above the peers of his age."

Zavaglia added: "I offered him to AS Roma, Torino, Parma and Fiorentina, but the only one to listen to me was Lazio."
