With the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern just delighted about the fact their season looks back on track right now, those propping up the bar have been dreaming about Champions League qualification once more.
Now Sadio Mane has returned, those on Merseyside are absolutely delighted about the complexion of their attack again, having struggled without their searing Senegalese. For the Kopites in the bar, many of them see this term as merely the beginning of something special under Jurgen Klopp.
There’s little doubt his squad will see many more changes over his tenure in charge at Anfield and reports emanating out of Brazil suggest there is interest in taking one of the club’s stalwarts off the German’s hands.
Speaking to UOL, Grêmio president Romildo Bolzan Junior has confirmed the South American outfit have opened talks about the notion of bringing Lucas Leiva back to his homeland. Having moved to England from Rei de Copas way back in 2007, the 30-year-old has been part of the furniture at Anfield for well over a decade.
Still, he’s rarely been a regular and, popular as he is amongst our punters, many wouldn’t mind the Selecao star depart as Liverpool look to move on.
“Lucas Leiva is a player who is in the fans’ imagination. He is a player that would be important to bring, we made an approach, but at the moment he is out of the possibilities,” he said.
“I’m not going to feed false expectations. It’s very difficult for Lucas Leiva to come to Grêmio, we made an approach and the conditions are very difficult.”
Would Liverpool miss Lucas? Let us know below..
