Liverpool allow Lucas Leiva to hold Lazio talks

Lucas battles with Leicester's Jamie Vardy

Lazio captain Lucas Biglia is on the verge of joining AC Milan.

Lucas was mobbed by excited supporters when he arrived at Rome airport on Sunday evening and is now in the final stages of his transfer.

Lucas is Liverpool's current longest-serving player after a decade on Merseyside, but was left out of the squad for a friendly against Wigan last week as he considers his future.

Lucas Leiva's ten year stay at Liverpool could be coming to an end fairly soon, as various outlets suggested that Lazio had seen a bid of five-million-pounds accepted for the midfielder.

Leiva, 30, joined Liverpool from Gremio for € 10 back in 2007 and he is now set to leave Anfield Road after 346 games seven goals and 21 assists with the Reds.

How could Liverpool line up next season?

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.

Lucas has been permission given to travel and discuss personal terms with the Serie A side and undergo a medical ahead of a possible move to Italy. A list of players to actually play in the first team is far more interesting than a list of youth products!

"We can only involve 25 players, so if we take three goalkeepers we can only take 22 [outfield players]".
