Italian champions Juventus are showing interest in Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva.

The Reds are reportedly willing to cash in on the Brazilian for the right price this summer and he has instantly been linked with a switch to Italy as a result.

Both AC Milan and Inter have been mooted as suitors for the defensive midfielder, while according to Sky Italia, Juventus are also looking at a potential bid for the 28-year-old.

The Bianconeri have other priorities at present, with a defender and a 'number 10' uppermost in their thoughts as they look to address their most urgent needs before the start of the Serie A season.


A bid for Lucas though could be forthcoming, with the Brazilian highly rated in Italy.


Lucas faces fierce competition for a regular starting spot in Liverpool's midfield and may be tempted by the idea of a switch to one of Serie A's biggest clubs.

It remains to be seen what terms Liverpool would be willing to accept for the Brazilian however.
