Liverpool midfielder Lucas is pleading with his club to sign Ronaldinho.
The Reds have been linked with a move for the AC Milan ace in January after it was revealed he could be available on a free transfer.
Now Lucas as urged Liverpool to launch a bid for his Brazil teammate in a deal that would raise eyebrows at Anfield.
"I am not aware of anything in terms of Ronaldinho signing, but I would be very happy if this was to happen," Leiva told Globoesporte, as reported by Tuttomercatoweb.com.
"We started a friendship when we played in the Olympics and for Brazil. It would be nice to play with him at Liverpool.
"Everyone knows Ronaldinho and they know what he can do."
The ex-Barcelona star is undoubtedly one of the best players of his generation, and would provide Liverpool with the added potency they so desperately crave.
Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is said to be on the lookout for a creative mind to partner Anfield hero Fernando Torres and has been linked with the like of Keisuke Honda and Eden Hazard.
A deal for the World Cup winner would represent a significant coup for Liverpool and would act as a message of intent from new Reds owners NESV.
However, Liverpool may be put off by the former Paris Saint-Germain playmaker's wage demands of a reported €7.5 million per annum.
