Inter Milan eye summer move for Lucas Leiva

Published Add your comment

Liverpool may well have found a buyer for Lucas Leiva, with transfer speculation suggesting that Inter Milan are pondering a bid for the Brazilian.

According to reports cited by talkSPORT, the Reds are willing to consider bids for Lucas and Inter appear very keen to bolster their squad with the addition of a new defensive midfielder in time for the 2014/15 campaign.

It is further speculated by the same source that Inter believed an offer of £8 million may well be enough to ensure that the former Gremio man heads to the San Siro.

A popular figure at Anfield, Lucas - who has 24 senior international caps to his name but was not selected in Brazil's squad for the 2014 World Cup on home soil - proved himself a very important figure for Liverpool after an indifferent start on Merseyside but has often been frustrated by a series of injury woes.

This season, he made 27 appearances during a hugely enjoyable and overwhelmingly positive time for Brendan Rodgers' side, with seven of those coming from the substitutes bench.

Although you would expect Rodgers to be looking to heavily strengthen his squad during the next transfer window to suitably prepare them for the rigours of Champions League football, it appears that there will be somewhat of a clearout at Anfield in the near future with reports claiming that up to 14 players are facing a possible axe with Liverpool keen to recoup a significant sum.

Lucas' notable injury problems - which severely restricted his participation during the final months of the Premier League campaign - could feasibly lead him to be one of those who is under threat, with Liverpool having been significantly boosted by the stellar form of Jordan Henderson.
