Liverpool fans praying for an end to Lucas Leiva’s transfer saga this summer could be about to get their way, with Besiktas director Erol Kaynar having confirmed that a loan deal for the Brazilian could happen within the next 48 hours.
"A loan deal is likely. It could go ahead within the next two days," Kaynar said, as relayed by the Daily Star.
Lucas has been frozen out by Brendan Rodgers this term despite having been a leal servant for a number of years, and it’s now believed that he’ll have to find another club if he’s to play regular first-team football this season.
It’s Besiktas who are negotiating with the Reds over a transfer, and it can only be assumed that a conclusion is on the horizon.
In other news Everton boss Roberto Martinez has revealed why he turned down the chance to manage the Reds in 2012.
When asked by Spanish newspaper Marca why he snubbed Liverpool before working with Everton, Martinez said it was a natural choice.
He might well reconsider his route if the Toffees can’t recover from last season’s underperforming hangover.
Sakho contract difficulty
Last but not least the club have offered centre-back Mamadou Sakho a new contract as they want him to stay, but the player himself could reject their proposal as he is seeking first-team football.
The former PSG star has struggled of late to break into Rodgers’ starting XI, and is wanted by the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and AS Roma. His decision regarding the offer on the table from Liverpool will surely determine his future.
