Liverpool could allow the Brazilian to leave on loan with a view to a permanent deal and on of the reason behind that is James Milner, who began his Anfield career with victory.

Lucas Leiva has joined the Reds in the summer of 2007 from the Brazilian side Grêmio and still has two years to run on his current contract at Anfield. He became the first Brazilian to score for Liverpool when he scored against Havant and Waterlooville in the FA cup and has made almost 250 appearances at Anfield.
