Inter make contact with Liverpool midfielder over €13m move

Share

Inter Milan are looking to sign a quality central midfielder in the summer and have targeted Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva to fill the role.

The 27-year-old didn’t enjoy a great start to his Liverpool career and was even booed by the home fans. However, he won back the heart of fans with series of strong performances and has been one of the key players for the Reds in the last few years.

Last season has been bit of disappointment for the Brazilian where he struggled to get regular games. Skipper Steven Gerrard has been deployed in the defensive midfield role while The Times reported Lucas could be one of several players, who could be heading the Anfield exit door in the summer.

The Reds had been linked with Porto’s Fernando last season and could go for him again this summer. Any arrival of a new central defensive midfield would surely mark the end of Lucas’ career at Anfield. Inter see this as an opportunity to sign the Brazilian and have already made an approach with the player’s representatives.

According to Sportmediaset, Inter are pondering to lodge an official bid, but Lucas’ high wages could be a problem for them.

Liverpool has slapped an asking price of €13m for Lucas, but Nerazzurri are hopeful of reducing that transfer fee through negotiations in coming weeks.

    • Well, I like your starting line-up, but the problem is that you have sold all the substitutes! What happens when 2 of your starting 11 get injured, other 2 are unfit and 1 is suspended?

      Two quick points:
      (1) Let us not get carried over and do a “garage sale”. There is always a huge cost to changing 90% of your team. It takes time for them to bond while getting used to the league. Look at Tottenham, you will understand.
      (2) Don’t also forget that some people are very useful in the locker room, by motivating and being vocal. Kolo Toure is one and I like him on the bench (I know…).

      • What do you know? That Toure is good at sitting down? Well he may well be good at sitting down, but he’s rubbish when he’s stood up, which is in my experience fairly vital when playing football.

      • Five of those werent even at the club and most of the rest played little or no part 2 were on loan theyve gone so i think your theory has holes in it.
        Added to that a couple of academy kids are very good chances to get squad spots.

    • a, you must be a prick. Why not sell the whole liverpool club then? dumb move!!!

    • bro u got it all wrong!

    • This is not fifa ;)

    • This is Bad, Vertongen is a Left footed, so he Cant Play RCB, and Wats Wrong With Sakho-Agger, All We need a Good RCB that can Compete with Skertal with the likes of “Howedes”, and We Need a LB and a RB, So LB Alberto Moreno is Good, but we still need a RB like “Richards or Montoya”, Def-Mid “Javi Martinez” wont be sold by Pep Gurdiola, so I think Bender “Bayern Levakeser” and Fernando “Porto” would be Good, and we need a CM like “Rakitic or Koke” would be good for us, On the Wing I Like Griezmann, but the likes of Reus would be Way Better, either one would be Good Signings, and We Need another CAM Like “Isco or Eriksen” to Help Coutinho Out and the last Part is a BackUp ST for Suarez and Sturridge, a Player like “Lacazette or Remy” Would be Good for us

    • Marco reus he’s top notch

    • so u want to sell the whole team? what about sustitutes?come on man, u deluded, or still playing FIFA?

    • Did you not see what happened to Tottenham when they replaced half the team in one season.

      Yes some need to go and some need to come in but this is not an overhaul season its an improvement season.

      Those that need to go are;
      Reina and Assaidi(only as they are basically a done deal’s), Kelly too injury prone and Cissokho and Aspas just don’t cut it.

      Over the next few years the fringe players will begin to leave.

      P.s. CHRONICK’S Fifa comment made me wet myself.

      Y.N.W.A

    • You still have Johnson at right back?!?

  2. Aspas 8? Mancity or Monaco wudnt pay 4. A startin line up without Sterling, Coutinho and skrtel… Did u watch any of last seasons matches???

  3. hi my squad for 2014/15 league and champions league is…mignolet,johnson,skrtel,carvalho,moreno,henderson,gerrard,lallana,sterling,saurez,sturridge,coutinho,agger,sakho,enrique,kovacic,griezmann,martinez,valdez…hope brandon will sign them…mark

  4. d guy is not a liverpool fan, he is not wishin us well, selling Allen nd borini is nt a gud idea and lastly we need another right back nd will replaced johnson nd ilori is still young nd should not b sold too. henderson, sterling and stertel should b at our startin eleveen

  5. Guy pls just tell me you are joking,what kind of team selection is that and you even keep Johnson who blow our title hope away.pls just tell me u just wake up from sleep b4 posting this comment.

  6. I’d drive Lucas to Inter in-exchange for Kovacic. In fact, I’d offer inter an additional 5m + Lucas for Kovacic.

  7. Our champion league starting ix should be
    mignolet rechard/montoya skrtel, agger, moreno
    onazi ,gerrard henderson, lallana,
    sas. Sub: sterling allen coutinho, parejo,

  8. Good morning all…I tink johnson should go,den let BR. Bring in a LB and push flangan to) to replace johnson… Javi matinez should come in to help henderson..den we need smbdy like isco or di maria..and porto jackson matinez or napoli hamsik to help suraz…

  9. ………………mignolet…………………
    Montoya,skrtel,cauker,moreno.
    …………………gerrard…………………

  10. Lallana, Moreno, Martinez,Vorm, lovren, a right back and may b another quality striker wil solve all d problems of liverpool wid this players believe me liverpool wil b another top side to stop from d league

  11. It will b gud if I c HENRIKH MICKTERYAN & KONOPLYANKA in our squad our chapion league wil b unbelewivable.

  12. I think we should not sell Agger & Borini.

  13. Lucas for Kovacic, would be a very good bargain IMO cos Kovacic is everything lucas is not. Aspas, Borini,johnson, moses, Cissokho out, while in come Moreno, Montoya,Kovacic, Guzan/ sperroni, Mbia,tello/kplyenka,Ribeiro

  14. BR shud add vorm lallana moreno rakitic and shaqiri.sell aspas kelly reina toure jones assaidi and bring back javier mascherano to add some exprience to the young squad.in my view,jon flanagan can be the next phillip lahm if well utilised

  15. Johnson is not a good player

  16. agger leiva borini suso alberto allen and enrique shud stay put.we wud beta retain jonson than have injury prone richards
