Lucas Leiva set for Anfield exit

Lucas Leiva could leave Liverpool after being dropped for the season opener against Stoke.

The Brazilian International was left out of the Liverpool squad in their win at the Britannia Stadium. The long-serving midfielder will be allowed for Anfield exit after falling out of favour with manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Reds are reportedly willing to listen to offers for the 28-year-old midfielder and Brendan Rodgers might let him go for a transfer fee of around £8 million. Number of European clubs have showed interest in Lucas Leiva however Serie A side Inter Milan are speculated to be in the driving seat to acquire the services of the Brazilian midfielder. Lucas Leiva was a subject of interest for Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini back in January as well, and the Brazilian was interested to join San Siro squad too.

The 28-year-old joined Reds from Brazilian club Gremio for £5m in 2007 and soon became an eminent figure in Anfield. His contract with Reds expires in 2017.
