Liverpool’s transfer window has commanded as many headlines as many of their fellow Premier League sides but significant moves are still likely to be made.
The Reds secured a big addition in the form of Mohamed Salah from Roma and Jurgen Klopp continues to chase the ideal recruits, whilst he’s also preparing for the potential departure of a wealth of the club’s fringe players.
Lucas Leiva stood as one of those last season and is now available on a free transfer after his contract at Anfield drew to a close earlier this month, although he’s still training with the side where he became a fan favourite following a decade at the club.
The Daily Star, citing Di Marzio, claim Italian outfit Lazio are keen on the services of the Brazilian veteran, who accumulated over 340 appearances for Liverpool during 10 years on Merseyside- and it’s likely his spell in England will come to a close.
Why are Lazio keen?
Lazio are reportedly preparing for life without Argentine ace Lucas Biglia, who looks set to become the latest recruit of AC Milan’s frantic summer transfer push- with the San Siro giants having already secured the likes of Adrien Silva and, for some reason, former Liverpool flop Fabio Borini.
30-year-old Leiva could fill the void left by his fellow South American in Rome and a free transfer would be financially appealing to an Italian side who cannot afford to spend as much as rivals like Juventus and both Milan sides in the market.
