Inter Milan aiming to sign Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva [SportMediaset]

Inter Milan have set their sights on Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva, aiming to add the Brazilian midfielder to their ranks as they undergo a summer of transition, according to Italian website SportMediaset.

Liverpool are said to be open to the possibility of Lucas leaving and are asking for a £10.5 million fee for the player.

Initially deemed a flop, Liverpool fans warmed to Lucas Leiva and he has since established himself as a fans favourite after adapting to the English game.

He’s regularly hailed as a vital cog in Liverpool’s system but Brazil boss Luis Felipe Scolari opted not to include the holding midfielder in his World Cup squad.
