Lucas Leiva nearing Liverpool loan exit

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva could find himself heading out of Liverpool in January as talks begin with Inter Milan over a possible loan move, Talksport are reporting.

A busy transfer window last summer for the Reds has seen the once first choice Leiva fall further down the pecking order at Anfield.

He has made just 14 appearances for Brendan Rodgers side this season with the majority of these made in cup competitions or from the bench.

The Brazilian is reportedly seeking a move away from the club and it is Inter Milan who have made their move.

Roberto Mancini is keen to strengthen his inherited Inter side and sees Leiva as a top target who may be readily available.

Fellow Italian club Napoli shows strong interest during the close season while there is thought to be suitors from South America – but Inter seem the preferred and most likely destination.

Representatives have made contact with the San Siro club and all parties are hoping any potential deal can be made before the start of the January transfer window.
