Reds open to Lucas offers

Liverpool are prepared to listen to offers for midfielder Lucas Leiva this summer, who is interesting Italian side Napoli.

The Brazilian, who missed out on a place in his country's World Cup squad, could be heading out of Anfield after slipping down the pecking order under boss Brendan Rodgers.

After recovering from injury last term, Lucas had to settle for a place on the bench for much of the run-in with Rodgers preferring Joe Allen, Jordan Henderson and Steven Gerrard in the middle of the park.

The recent acquisition of defensive midfielder Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen means Lucas could struggle for action again come August and his future looks uncertain.

Former Reds boss Rafa Benitez is keen on being reunited with the player he signed when at Anfield in 2007 but has yet to make an offer amid claims the Italians would prefer a season-long loan deal.

Liverpool would be open to that idea but would also listen to permanent bids in excess of £6m for the 27-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Inter Milan.
