Inter Milan renew Lucas Leiva interest

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan could be set to renew their interest in Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva after the Brazilian has fallen out with Brendan Rodgers, reports talkSPORT.

The injury-hit midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield and has been told by Rodgers that he is free to leave, despite being told months earlier he cannot complete a transfer.

Lucas was wanted by the Italian side back in January, with Roberto Mancini desperate to get the deal over the line and finalised. However, Liverpool rejected the proposed transfer and told the Serie A side he wasn't for sale.

Now, though, it would seem that Lucas, despite being considered a fan favourite at Anfield, could now be set for the chop from the Merseyside club due to new arrivals.

Lucas is now considered fifth choice centre-midfielder at Anfield behind Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Emre Can and Joe Allen, meaning his game-time for the new season could be very limited.

The 28-year-old wasn't included in Rodgers' match-day squad for the season opener against Stoke City on Sunday, a game in which they won 1-0, fuelling rumours that he is seeking a way out.

Reports suggest that Milan are eyeing an initial season-long loan with the option to buy afterwards, with Liverpool likely to accept.
