Lucas could be nearing the end of his seven year tenure at Anfield…
Read more Liverpool transfer rumours.
Inter Milan have earmarked Liverpool’s Brazilian anchorman Lucas as a potential summer transfer target, reports Italian website SportMediaset.
The Reds are apparently willing to do business for around £10.5m, for the player who has been a key cog in Liverpool’s side over the past few seasons, but fallen down the pecking order in recent months.
With the form of Jordan Henderson, Joe Allen and Coutinho alongside Steven Gerrard (who has taken Gerrard’s anchoring midfield role), Lucas has struggled to get into Brendan Rodgers’ free-flowing side since he picked up an injury around Christmas.
Lucas missed out on Brazil’s World Cup squad as a result, and could be leaving Anfield too.
Lucas arrived on Merseyside way back in 2007, and despite originally struggling to adapt to English football, he worked hard enough and earned the support of the Reds faithful.
He prides himself on his tackling, his interceptions, and the platform he provides the rest of the side in midfield.
