Lazio submit £5million bid for Liverpool favourite

Transfer report Lazio ‘in pole position’ to sign departing Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva

Transfer report Lazio ‘in pole position’ to sign departing Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva

Lazio are looking for a solid replacement of Lucas Biglia who made his move to Milan and in Lucas Leiva, they could get a like for like replacement.

Lucas will land at Rome's Fiumicino on Sunday evening, according to the claims, and the Brazilian will then have a medical on Monday morning and, all being well, will start a new chapter in his career.

Lucas is Liverpool's longest serving player in the Squad having joining from July 2007 from Gremio in £5m deal.

A fee of £5M represents solid money for the 30-year-old, whilst shifting him off the wage bill would certainly help Liverpool balance the books, with Lucas reportedly on around £80,000 per-week.

Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League last season and will be aiming to progress to the group stage of the 2017-18 Champions League campaign.

Lucas sat out last night's friendly as Wigan Athletic. The Brazilian midfielder, along with James Milner, are two of the senior most players in an otherwise young side.

However, the midfielder is not expected to be a major part of manager Jurgen Klopp's plans this season, meaning a move away is the most likely outcome.

He played 25 games as Liverpool finished as runners-up in the 2008-09 season and established himself as a first-team regular starter the following campaign.
