1 Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva Inter Milan remain in hot pursuit of Liverpool midfielder Lucas, despite splashing the cash to bring Xherdan Shaqiri and Lukas Podolski to the San Siro.The 28-year-old struggled to cement a place in Brendan Rodgers’ starting line-up earlier in the season, but has emerged as a key player after a string of impressive performances for the Reds.And Liverpool are now seemingly unwilling to negotiate the sale of the combative Brazilian, especially to the club who beat them to the signing of Switzerland winger Shaqiri.Inter may also be reliant on offloading some of their current squad first, with Ibrahima Mbaye, Rene Krhin and Yann M’Vila all likely to make way to facilitate a move for the Brazilian.
