Liverpool star set to depart Anfield this summer

Everton v Liverpool - Barclays Premier LeagueSome upsetting news coming in to the Transfer Tavern today for the Liverpool fans having a few pints.

Some reliable reports are pouring in from Sky Sports that long term Anfield servant and fan favourite, Lucas Leiva is heading out of the exit door.

This is coming after the sports news channel are saying that Liverpool are listening to offers for the Brazilian central midfielder, with a view to offloading him before the close of this transfer window.

With Brendan Rodgers looking like he has his mind set on his central midfield duo of newly appointed captain Jordan Henderson and James Milner, there looks to bit little room for the ageing Lucas.

Together with the youthful replacements that Rodgers has at his disposal in the form of Emre Can and Joe Allen, the game time Lucas Leiva would receive should he stay at Liverpool looks limited.

Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are close to tears, but do admit it is probably right that he did move on from Anfield this summer!

What do you think Liverpool Fans? Will you be sad to see Lucas Leiva leave? Let us know your thoughts below!
