Tottenham and Liverpool will face a fight with Inter Milan for Sao Paulo midfielder Lucas, according to talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old South American starlet has caught the eye of a number of top European clubs, after a series of impressive performances in the Brazilian top-flight.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is a known admirer of the young Brazilian - who has no relation to Liverpool's current midfield anchorman. But the fact that the prospective target is a regular room-mate of his namesake Lucas Leiva on international trips, means that Dalglish is confident of persuading the player to move to Anfield.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has also been credited with an interest in the player - adding to speculation that Lucas has been earmarked as the long-term successor to Luka Modric, who continues to be linked with a White Hart Lane exit.


The Tottenham boss was left frustrated by a lack of activity in the recent transfer window, but did manage to conclude a deadline day deal for Scott Parker, to further strengthen Spurs' midfield ranks.

But any plans to negotiate a deal for Lucas, could be scuppered by Inter's intentions to make a £15million bid in January.

Sao Paulo are reluctant to sell, as the player is only in his second full season with the first-team, but admit it is only a matter of time before Lucas moves on to a bigger club - whether that is Liverpool, Tottenham, or Inter Milan remains to be seen.
